What is PUE?
PUE is Primary, Urgent and Emergency Care.
It is "Infrastructure" scaffolding for serious and respected health care with health maintenance for urban population health.
With the advent of the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, first national health care reform law for the United States of America being introduced October 1, 2013 and full implementation on January 1, 2014; many Milwaukeeans that do not have health care will for the first time have an opportunity to look at their role and responsibility of health as a real option in their health care. They can choose a Primary Care provider.
Primary Care providers, doctors, nurses and specialists, can help Milwaukeeans take control and help themselves through planned regular checkups, diagnosed problems, health records monitoring and preventive behavior and services. The services include referrals to other specialists - services that reside within the census tract and neighborhood structure.
Urgent Care is the step before Emergency Care. It is an after-hour, weekend and holiday care center to treat non-life threatening health care issues; i.e., rashes, throat pain, pink eye, animal bites, minor burns and bladder infections. It is a place to receive services when the Primary Care physician is not available.
Much is needed in reform to ensure that facilities of health care providers and practitioners are "within" the neighborhoods of Milwaukeeans, not in outside parameters to their neighborhoods - NEW and state-of-the-art facilities.
Primary and Urgent Care is part of the three-way health care process for improved population health care.
For much too long, Milwaukeeans without health insurance were serviced through tirage Emergency Care. It was 9-1-1 service. It was life-threatening or permanent harm care in a hospital setting, i.e., Aurora-St. Luke, Aurora-Sinai, Columbia-St. Mary, Froedtert and St. Joseph. This meant that the health care was "momentarial". It did not provide follow-up care. It was not personable. It was very necessary, costly and limited.
Though Emergency care was vital and served its purpose, it did not allow for routine and ongoing intervention and prevention of health care concerns. It did not allow for a regiment of services that prevent diseases and helps to create and sustain good health care in urban population health care in Milwaukee.
