Quality Measures

Average Time from Arrival to Departure
This measure looks at the average time patients are in the emergency department (ED).  Longer wait times may be a sign the ED is understaffed or overcrowded.  This may result in delays in treatment, increased suffering and potentially poor patient outcomes.   The average visit time in Wisconsin is 117 minutes.  Upland Hills Health has an average of 107.62 minutes and is performing better than the Wisconsin average in minutes.

Average Time before EKG for Patient With Chest Pain/Possible Heart Attack
This measure looks at all patients who arrived at the ED with chest discomfort or symptoms suggestive of a heart attack.  Timely EKGs help identify patients who need further care, which results in better patient outcomes.  Upland Hills Health has a target for an EKG to be performed within 10 minutes of arrival for patients who are having heart attack-like symptoms.   UHH has been obtaining that first EKG in an average of 4.58 minutes and performing EKG's faster than the Wisconsin average.
