The medical screening program for alcohol rehabilitation was studied in 1985 at the Universiy of Maryland Hospital emergency room (ER) to determine its effectiveness and the appropriateness of care delivered. The conclusions reached from this study helped determine the needed intensity of this screening program to maintain quality of care and cost effectiveness. A retrospective study was performed in 1985 by the ER staff to determine the cost effectiveness of the medical screening program and its ability to identify new or acute medical problems requiring physician intervention. A secondary objective of the study was to evaluate the appropriateness of this screening arrangement in light of other options.
