Settings[edit] Health care organizations use different ways to define the nature of care provided as "ambulatory" versus inpatient or other types of care.[7][8][10][11] Sites where ambulatory care can be delivered include: An examination room in a doctor's office. Doctor's surgeries (known as doctor's offices in American English): This is the most common site for the delivery of ambulatory care in many countries, and usually consists of a physician's visit. Physicians of many specialties deliver ambulatory care. These physicians include specialists in family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics, gynaecology, cardiology, gastroenterology, endocrinology, ophthalmology, and dermatology. Clinics: Including ambulatory care clinics, polyclinics, ambulatory surgery centers, and urgent care centers. In the United States, the Urgent Care Association of America (UCAOA) estimates that over 15,000 urgent care centers deliver urgent care services. These centers are designed to evaluate and treat conditions that are not severe enough to require treatment in a hospital emergency department but still require treatment beyond normal physician office hours or before a physician appointment is available. In Russia and other countries of the former Soviet Union, Feldsher health stations are the main site for ambulatory care in rural areas.[12] Hospitals: Including emergency departments and other hospital-based services such as same day surgery services and mental health services. Hospital emergency departments: Some visits to emergency departments result in hospital admission, so these would be considered emergency medicine visits rather than ambulatory care. Most visits to hospital emergency departments, however, do not require hospital admission. Non-medical institution-based settings: Including school and prison health; vision, dental and pharmaceutical care.[citation needed] Non-institution settings: For example, mass childhood immunization campaigns using community health workers.[9]

Conditions[edit] Ambulatory care sensitive conditions (ACSC) are illnesses or health conditions where appropriate ambulatory care prevents or reduces the need for hospital admission. Appropriate care for an ACSC can include one or more planned revisits to settings of ambulatory care for follow-up, such as when a patient is continuously monitored or otherwise advised to return when (or if) symptoms appear or reappear.[citation needed] Relatively common ACSC include:[6][13][14][15][16] asthma angina diabetes (complications) chronic obstructive pulmonary disease pelvic inflammatory disease hypertension Chronic pain, Pain management gastroenteritis gangrene ear-nose-throat (ENT) infections congestive heart failure epilepsy influenza, pneumonia and other vaccine-preventable diseases tuberculosis iron deficiency anemia urinary tract infections cellulitis dental conditions. Hospitalization for an ACSC is considered to be a measure of access to appropriate primary health care, including preventive and disease management services. While not all admissions for these conditions are avoidable, appropriate ambulatory care could help prevent their onset, control an acute episode, or manage a chronic disease or condition.:[6][13][14] For Medicaid-covered and uninsured U.S. hospital stays in 2012, six of the top ten diagnoses were ambulatory care sensitive conditions.[17]
