Our recent white paper explores a growing trend in rural emergency rooms: fortifying physician-led ER teams with advanced practice provider support.

Rural health leaders continue to seek solutions for challenges facing their emergency departments. Growing physician shortages, unpredictable patient volumes, and increased COVID vulnerability can lead to bottlenecks in emergency rooms, inefficient delivery of services, and unsatisfied patients and providers.

One solution rural health leaders can consider is building physician-led advanced practice provider teams to streamline emergency department services while ensuring the delivery of safe, high-quality patient care. In this brief white paper, we touch on the unique challenges rural hospitals face and explore how APP teams can be a viable solution. We also offer ideas for funding APP team recruitment and retention, such as COVID stimulus and rural health initiatives.
