Healthcare Areas

Starting a conversation

Why do we talk about things like hospital occupancy rates in relation to emergency departments? The healthcare system is complex and inter-related. What’s happening in the hospital, or even in continuing care, can impact patients’ experiences in the emergency department.

These 19 interactive charts are updated quarterly (every three months) and present administrative data as well as patient experience survey data. You can compare emergency departments, such as those in medium urban centres like Red Deer and Medicine Hat, and look at data presented quarterly versus monthly.
