services 24 hours a day. By law, a situation is
considered to be an "emergency" if a prudent
layperson believes that failing to act
immediately would put your health or the
health of others in danger.

C) Patients Requiring Coordination
(PRC) Information
Goal: Ensure hospitals know when they are
treating a PRC patient and treat accordingly

seekers
• Receive and use client list
• Identify patients on arrival
• Develop and coordinate case
management programs
• Use care plans
7

D) PRC Client Care Plans
Goal: Assist PRC clients with their care plans
• Contact the primary care provider when PRC client
visits the ER
• Efforts to make an appointment with the primary
care provider within 72 hours when appropriate
• If no appointment required, notify primary care
provider that a visit occurred
• Relay barriers to care to Health Care Authority
8

F) Prescription Monitoring
Goal: Ensure coordination of prescription drug
prescribing practices
• Enroll providers in Prescription Monitoring Program:
electronic online database with data on patients prescribed
controlled substances
• Target enrollment for ER providers :
– 75% by June 15, 2012
– 90% by December 31, 2012
– Enroll is one thing… USE is another!

Projection
Actual trend
Hospitals and

be looking for
trends and patterns,
intervene, make
continuous change!

BEWARE!
Newest Twist in HCA rules, July 2012
(13) Client financial responsibility
” A client placed in the PRC program may
be billed by a provider and held financially
responsible for health care services when
the client obtains non-emergent services
and the provider who renders the services
is not assigned or referred under the PRC
program.”
