Pre-Hospital / Urgent Care

  • Many TBI injuries are first encountered outside of the hospital (pre-Hospital) by Emergency Medicine providers such as ambulance personnel, or in Urgent Care centers.
  • The care in the field (pre-hospital setting) is a critical determinant of outcome for patients with TBI.
  • Urgent care is one of the fastest-growing segments in health care, projected to grow almost 40 percent, to $18 billion, by 2017.
