ED Benchmark Alliance

The ED is a site of service that is managed by understanding the nature of the clinical practice, and using data to prepare the EDto see patients for years into thefuture. There are performance measures that have been defined, and cohorts of EDs that serve as useful sources of comparative data for ED leaders. These were developed at the ED Performance Measures Summit in 2006, and published in:

Emergency Department Performance Measures and Benchmarking Summit. Welch S, Augustine J, Camargo CA, et al. Acad Emerg Med (United States), 2006 Oct;13(10):1074-80. Epub 2006 Aug 31. PMID: 16946283

A copy of that article is attached, and could also be referenced on the Website.

ED Managers and facility planners can find useful measures for ED performance by becoming active with their peers, and utilizing groups like the ED Benchmarking Alliance for useful data.
