The article reports on the prediction of Dr. Thom A. Mayer, president of Best Practices in Faifax, Virginia, that emergency departments (EDs) in time will focus on critical care centers in the U.S. He stresses that they can have more revenue per hour since they can see more patients. However, Denise King, president of the Emergency Nurses Association, estimates that between 40% and 50% of patients seen in EDs do not need be seen there and could be seen in retail clinics.
