ABSTRACT

Effects of State COVID-19 Closure Policy on NON-COVID-19 Health Care Utilization   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Abstract: "The U.S. health care system has experienced great pressure since early March 2020 as it pivoted to providing necessary care for COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] patients. But there are signs that non-COVID-19 care use declined during this time period. We examine near real time data from a nationwide electronic healthcare records system that covers over 35 million patients to provide new evidence of how non-COVID-19 acute care and preventive/primary care have been affected during the epidemic."
