Small Hospitals Emergency Database (SHED) project begins data collection

February 2011

The SHED project is going full steam ahead with its data collection phase underway having started in January 2011. This phase of the project captures 12 months of emergency department data across six rural hospital locations. The data entered into the system will be used to accurately describe what happens in small rural emergency departments. We have had a high level of enthusiasm from participating hospital emergency departments and they are all entering their data with a high level of data accuracy.
