A pilot study describing access to emergency care in two states using a model emergency care categorization system.
To improve regionalization of care and patient decisions when seeking emergency care, the researchers surveyed emergency departments (EDs) in 2 States. They found that 25 percent provided advanced care, 10.5 percent comprehensive care, and 1.6 percent pediatric critical care. Overall, 75.1 percent of the population could reach advanced or comprehensive ED within 60 minutes by ground transportation.
