Use of CEDR Big Data for Elucidating COVID-19's Impact on Emergency Care (with Audience Q&A)

April 6, 2022

Prerequisite: None

Stephen K. Epstein


Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine

Harvard Medical School

This session will include a moderated Q&A featuring questions from the live audience.

The COVID-19 pandemic generated several crises specific to the Emergency Department (ED) including large drops in ED patient volumes and the increased burden of capturing valid pandemic data to measure nationwide effects on emergency care. Since 2015, the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) has been developing and maturing its Clinical Emergency Data Registry (CEDR) into a big data resource to facilitate data reporting, modernize data governance, and democratize nationwide emergency medicine analytics. ACEP, alongside academic partners, analyzed ED visits collected in CEDR before and during the pandemic (between 2019 and 2021) to elucidate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on ED utilization for emergency conditions, with a particular focus on vulnerable populations (e.g., geriatric patients). Dr. Epstein will illustrate the quality, data governance, querying, and analytics approaches utilized as well as novel data linkages developed with CEDR.
