Association of race/ethnicity with emergency department destination of emergency medical services transport.
The authors examined the patterns of emergency department (ED) destination of emergency medical services (EMS) transport according to patient race/ethnicity and compared the patterns between those transported by EMS and those who did not draw on EMS. Using Medicare claims data, they found race/ethnicity variation in ED destination for patients using EMS transport, with black and Hispanic patients more likely to be transported to a safety-net hospital ED compared with white patients living in the same zip code.
