Emergency room and hospital utilization among adults with IDD are significant contributors to rising healthcare costs. This study identified predictors of utilization for a sample of 597 adults with IDD. Using a retrospective survey of medical charts, logistic regressions were conducted. This study found risk factors unique to adults with IDD that should be addressed with tailored OT and primary-care interventions.
