Calculation: Description
Table Cell (td)

The indicator is measured in hours, usually using the 90th percentile and/or 50th percentile, which represents the maximum length of time that 90% and/or 50% of patients stay in the emergency department (ED) until a visit disposition decision is made.

Unit of analysis: Single ED visit

Rationale
Table Cell (td)

Time is crucial to the effectiveness and outcome of patient care, especially for emergency patients. In conjunction with other indicators, this can be used to monitor the total time patients spend in the ED in an effort to improve the efficiency and, ultimately, the outcome of patient care.

Multiple factors can influence the indicator results, including triage level, patient population and hospital resources.

Scheduled visits to the ED are excluded from this indicator.

This indicator can also be calculated at other percentiles, such as the 10th, 25th or 75th percentile.

Coverage in the National Ambulatory Care Reporting System (NACRS) changes over time as more jurisdictions participate.

Depending on the acuity of the case or hospital procedures, triage may occur before registration or vice versa. Therefore, the earlier of these 2 events is used as the starting point for this indicator's calculation.

Indicator results are also available as of 2011 in
CAD eNACRS Reports.
