Efficient information management and communication within the emergency department (ED) is essential to providing timely and high-quality patient care. The ED whiteboard (census board) usually serves as an ED's central access point for operational and patient-related information. This article describes the design, functionality, and experiences with a(More)
Hospital admission delays in the Emergency Department (ED) reduce volume capacity and contribute to the nation's ED diversion problem. This study evaluated the accuracy of a Bayesian network for the early prediction of hospital admission status using data from 16,900 ED encounters. The final model included nine variables that are commonly available in many(More)
Hospital admission delays in the Emergency Department (ED) reduce capacity and contribute to the ED's diversion problem. We evaluated the accuracy of an Artificial Neural Network for the early prediction of hospital admission using data from 43,077 pediatric ED encounters. We used 9 variables commonly available in the ED setting. The area under the receiver(More)
Predicting a patient's expected length of stay for an Emergency Department encounter is valuable to anticipate impending operational bottlenecks that may lead to diversion. We developed and validated an artificial neural network using data from >16,000 patients using clinical and operational parameters that are commonly available early during an encounter.(More)
