Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for Irish Emergency Departments

Background

IAEM in conjunction with the Irish National Board of the College of Emergency Medicine engaged in a very important project to decide upon Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for Irish Emergency Departments using a Delphi process. As the Health Information & Quality Authority (HIQA) are developing a suite of KPIs for Emergency Care, the contribution of experts in Emergency Medicine was deemed vital in ensuring that the KPIs chosen were appropriate for Irish Emergency Medicine and Emergency Departments. The study was approved by the Research Ethics Committee of St James’s Hospital/ Adelaide, Meath inc National Children’s Hospital, Tallaght in April 2009.
