The Process:

  • Interactive PDF worksheet for the ED leadership to submit their ED’s data.
  • Our team is actively engaged in the process, answering questions and reviewing and resolving data issues.
  • We perform web based surveys of the key stakeholders for each ED (often hundreds of individuals).
  • Conference call with ED and hospital leadership, led by one of our ED physician consultants, to review the report and discuss performance improvement strategies in more detail.

  • The report tracks your performance on 100 ED benchmarks and includes hundreds of comments from your key stakeholders.
