Executive Summary:

The 2017 General Assembly established the Emergency Department Care Coordination (EDCC) Program in the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) to provide a single, statewide technology solution that connects all hospital emergency departments in the Commonwealth to facilitate real-time communication and collaboration between physicians, other health care providers and other clinical and care management personnel for patients receiving services in hospital emergency departments. The EDCC Program was created for the purpose of improving the quality of patient care services and lowering costs (re:  § 32.1-372).
