Emergency Department

System Measures Measures reflect the way in which whole "systems" of care (hospitals, doctor offices, nursing homes, etc.) work. As a result, these measures may or may not be specifically indicative of Hospital quality.

Emergency Department (ED) Measures Display how timely and effective the care in a hospital's emergency department is delivered. Measures which show ED timeliness of care are displayed as an average in minutes, and thus may not reflect daily fluctuations of ED care. For these measures, a lower score in better. Please note that all ED measures are based on a limited sample each quarter and do not reflect the median score of all ED patients.

*These PA and US rates are case-weighted averages, which are calculated by dividing the total number of patients/cases that meet the received the recommended care according to the measure’s criteria by the total number of patients/cases that are eligible to be counted based on the measure’s inclusion criteria for all facilities included in the specified Hospital population.

**The Hospital quality measures reported on this website come from a variety of sources using several data collection processes and update schedules. While the PHCQA website contains the most recent publicly available information, the time periods represented by these data range from 6 to 24 months old. Caution should be used when drawing conclusions from these data as a Hospital’s performance may have changed significantly since the data was collected and reported. The PHCQA recommends you contact the Hospital directly to obtain the most recent performance data.
