System Performance

Emergency Department Visits By Home Care Patients In Last 30 Days Of Life

This is the percentage of publicly funded home care patients, of all ages, who had an unplanned visit to the emergency department in the last 30 days of life. A lower percentage of patients is better. Unplanned visits in the last month of life, which can be an extremely difficult experience for patients, could indicate they did not receive the care they needed in the community.
