Using NEDOCS to Predict EMS Turnaround Times
Tuesday, October 29, 2013
Can NEDOCS predict TAT for dropping off ambulance patients? Yes it can.

The NEDOCS score may be predictive of ambulance offload delay in the ED and should be further investigated as a potential marker for EMS systems. The NEDOCS score should be calculated in busy EDs and could potentially be utilized during EMS determination of the most appropriate destination, or as a tool for hospital EDs to initiate, and terminate ambulance diversion.
