Annual emergency department (ED) visits in the US reached 145.6 million in 2016, a 20 percent increase in just ten years. By addressing utilization rates and optimizing workflows, emergency departments can increase throughput, improve efficiency, and avoid preventable visits and admissions—ultimately saving on care costs and increasing revenue while providing better quality care.
