After-Hours Pediatric Clinic - Complete

Estimated Cost Savings millions if Primary Care Related ER Visits in Harris County Took Place In An Outpatient Setting Instead 2009

This program provides an after-hours pediatric clinic at three FQHCs in Harris County as an alternative to emergency departments. These clinics are accessible to pediatric patients of low income families. A research team from the University of Texas School of Public Health has conducted an evaluation of this program and concluded that it resulted in a reduction in emergency care utilization in the targeted population and in lower overall health care cost.
