2018 New England Emergency Department Study

The 2018 New England Emergency Department Study is currently active!

EMNet has teamed up with the R Baby Foundation again to perform the 2018 National ED Inventory in New England (NEDI-New England).

NEDI-New England surveys EDs in all 6 New England states: Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. The survey will collect information regarding ED characteristics, staffing, electronic resources, consultant availability, health-related social needs, and opioid management.

This study is a follow-up to an original study about 2014 (conducted in 2015). For more information about 2014 NEDI-NE, please contact Krislyn Boggs (tel: 617-724-4069).

The R Baby Foundation was established in 2006 to help newborn babies with often-misunderstood viral infections and other infectious diseases receive the highest quality of care and service through supporting education, research, treatment, training and life-saving equipment.
