Improving Emergency Department Efficiency Calculator


As the "front door" of the hospital, the emergency department needs to operate as efficiently as possible, quickly treating or admitting patients so that new patients can be served. Do you know what it's costing you when E.D. wait times are too high? Enter your data to calculate your hospital's potential revenue leak.

Here's an opportunity to estimate the impact of reducing LWOTs through improving E.D. efficiency, reducing E.D. boarding, implementing lean and other process improvements. Enter your hospital's information in the white cells to calculate the top line revenue improvement you could potentially experience by improving efficiency in the E.D.

DISCLAIMER: The following offers a simplified method for calculating estimated impact of various changes in data.
