It is critically important, now more than ever, for rural hospitals to have a renewed focus on quality and efficiency to stay relevant in this rapidly changing market place. Pressures are being felt in rural areas as the population ages, the number of uninsured rises, budgets tighten and the need to bend the health care cost curve increases. Hospital emergency departments will likely continue to experience rising volumes and pressure to reduce avoidable utilization. The rules and regulations that govern emergency department can be complex. The penalties for violations of the regulatory requirements can be high.
