December 8, 2020 An In-Depth Exploration of the HCUP Nationwide Emergency Department Sample (NEDS)
NEW
Webinar
When: Tuesday, December 8, 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. ET
Location: Online
Other Information: Registration is now open. Information is available here.
Summary: AHRQ will host a webinar featuring an in-depth presentation on the HCUP Nationwide Emergency Department Sample (NEDS). The NEDS can be used to create national and regional estimates of Emergency Department (ED) visits, regardless of whether they result in admission. One of the most distinctive features is its large sample size, which allows for analysis across hospital types and the study of relatively uncommon disorders.

Presenters will provide an overview of the NEDS including information about the database design, the importance of weighting the data to produce national estimates of ED visits and included data elements. Three use cases will showcase how to work with the database including: variation in ED utilization for injuries by type of trauma center, an investigation of differences in population-based rates for potentially preventable hospitalizations such as heart failure and asthma, and fluctuations over time in ED visits for seasonal illness. Presenters will conclude with an overview of how to compare results from the NEDS to output from HCUPnet (a free online query tool) followed by a final checklist of items researchers should keep in mind while working with the NEDS.
