The National ED Inventories (NEDI) are ongoing surveys (unfunded) that contain data on all EDs in a specific country/state/city, including facility location and annual visit volume. Each inventory was developed through collaboration of a Country/State/City Coordinator with EMNet staff. In 2014, we launched a protocol for investigators to perform the survey on a more independent basis.
- To create nation-specific emergency department (ED) inventories;
- To collect basic characteristics of EDs to allow regional and international comparisons; and
- To inform local efforts to improve the accessibility and quality of emergency care.
