Average time spent in the Emergency Department before admission to the hospital
This indicator focuses on patients who were admitted to the hospital as inpatients after visiting the Emergency Department, not those who went home after being treated in the Emergency Department. It measures the average time these patients spent in the Emergency Department - from the minute they arrived to the time they left the Emergency Department for their hospital beds.

For the above graph: Higher ↑ performance is better.
Why is there only one graph?
Because this is a new measure, only a limited amount of data is available. As past data on this measure becomes available, we will add another graph showing our performance over time.
