Fast Stats Effects on Emergency Department

Fast Stats, an online tool from AHRQ's Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) that allows users to analyze State-by-State information on hospital use, including the effects of Medicaid expansion and the Affordable Care Act, now includes data on emergency department (ED) visits by payer.

The resource is part of Fast Stats's component on the Effect of Health Insurance Expansion on Hospital Use by State. It provides quarterly data on ED visits from 2006 to 2014 for up to 27 States in a given year. AHRQ also has several tools to help improve ED triage and discharge processes.
