SEATTLE, August 20, 2014—Healthentic, an analytics company focused on easily measuring population health, released its analysis of potentially avoidable emergency room visits today. Utilizing data from 31 different companies, Healthentic found the rate of avoidable ER visits varied from as low as 2 percent to as high as 18 percent. Avoidable ER visits for non-emergency conditions, such as headaches, cost the businesses more than $1.3 million last year, representing 8 percent of their total ER costs. If the same rate of avoidable ER visits and costs held up nationally, that would equal approximately $3.8 billion annually.
