Real Solutions for Rural Emergency Departments

With ED visits increasing and reimbursement decreasing, the challenges are significant for operating an Emergency Department in a rural location. 

The practice of rural emergency medicine presents many unique challenges.  The most challenging, of which, is how to be staffed for a wide range of emergency situations when ED patient volumes swing from extreme highs to lows and its difficult to predict when such swings will be forthcoming.
