E.D. Performance Scorecard


Ten Factors For Emergency Department Success

Setting the right goals is the first step in creating measurable success. Nearly every hospital’s goals and measurements are slightly different. That’s why EmCare collaborates with hospital partners to establish benchmarks and achieve mutually- defined metrics for quality, efficiency and patient satisfaction.

How often does your emergency department achieve these key metrics?

Rate your E.D. on these success factors using a scale of 1 to 5:

1 = Never, 2 = Rarely, 3 = Sometimes, 4 = Usually, 5 = Always

Length of stay for the patient who is admitted (288 minutes or less per EDBA):
