Statistics that show the difference
Research has shown that patients with unmet social needs visit the ER more frequently. Addressing these needs in a healthcare setting may reduce recurrent emergency room visits and increase ER efficiency.
Our volunteer statistics from 2018 add up to more patients helped and subsequently less emergency room visits. This has an exponential impact—freeing up time that doctors can spend interacting with more patients, improving health outcomes of patients after discharge, and allowing future healthcare providers to gain the experience needed to better help patients in the future
