Emergency Department Throughput

Increase ED efficiency and throughput.

Improving efficiency and quality in the emergency department is more important than ever. Three-quarters of physicians report that emergency visits are on the rise, and emergency departments continue to be a major source of admissions for hospitals. MedeAnalytics Emergency Department Throughput analyzes your ED data, offering insight into turnaround times, quality, throughput, and efficiency measures. With this analysis, you can identify bottlenecks and opportunities to improve access, optimize staffing, reduce costs, ensure patient satisfaction, and prevent long wait times.

  • Improve overall ED efficiency

  • Analyze wait times by time of day or by procedure

  • Evaluate ED patient volumes at any time to see the correlation between census and throughput efficiency

  • Measure time between milestones including arrival, triage, first physician, and treatment

  • Efficiently assess and treat patients while improving quality measures

  • Compare ED performance across facilities and regions or by physician to pinpoint operational bottlenecks

  • Limit the number of patients leaving without treatment or against medical advice

  • Prevent diversion of EMS arrivals and hospital transfers to other facilities

  • Aggregation

    Aggregated emergency department encounters, events, charge utilization, and patient satisfaction data presents a full picture of ED performance.

  • Interpretation

    Insights into wait times, time to treatment, and patient volumes enable you to ensure optimal staffing to improve efficiency and patient care.

  • Transformation

    Comparing ED throughput across facilities, by physician, time of day, procedure, and more helps you identify opportunities for improvement.
