A new interactive report that enables health services to better monitor and track activity within their Emergency Department’s (EDs) has launched on the Victoria Agency for Health Information (VAHI) portal.
The Emergency department interactive report, released this week, provides authenticated users with the ability to identify trends in demand and performance as well as areas for service and quality improvement. The report will assist health services that run emergency departments to compare their performance with other health services and the statewide average.
Key features of the new report include:
- facilitating statewide, peer group, health service and campus level benchmarking
- enabling users to navigate data which is based on consumers’ treatment journey through the emergency department (arrival, assessment, treatment, outcomes)
- enabling interrogation of results to identify potential variation through use of filters and drill through,
- enabling data extraction for internal presentation and validation.
Report data is drawn from the Victorian Emergency Department Minimum Dataset (VEMD) and is refreshed daily, with a seven-day lag for data verification and reporting.
