Data Analytics and Reporting Toolkit - DART™

DART™ is an internally developed reporting platform that tracks metrics in all key domains giving a clear view of program performance and how value is created for the hospital and community.

ED Performance

DART™ monitors all key elements of ED performance:
  • • Door to Doctor Times
  • • LWBS
  • • Discharged LOS
  • • Admit LOS
  • • ED Decision to Admit

Hospitalist Performance

The following key inpatient metrics can be reported:
  • • Payer Mix
  • • LOS vs GMLOS
  • • Average Cost per Bed Day

DART™ reports on Medicare Outliers – those patients whose LOS are well beyond the GMLOS. This data can be reported monthly, annually and/or by provider.

ED Performance

Based on peak patient flow times (by hour and by day), we make real-time staffing decisions to improve all key performance measures.
