ED Performance Reports

Many hospitals routinely report indicators of performance every three months. Key measures include volumes, wait times and time spent in the ED for admitted and discharged patients. Many reports split these figures into triage categories. Here we model a quarterly report into a stock flow model and explore the effect of wait times on ED occupancy.
