NELA Mortality Monitoring (EWMA Charts)

A EWMA chart can be used to display near real-time in-hospital mortality within a single hospital . The chart displays the expected range of mortality given the hospitals casemix, and the hospital's actual mortality.  EWMAs can be used as a warning system for early detection of concerning changes in mortality rates.  This requires a good understanding of what the chart displays and how it should be used, so we encourage you to read the documents listed below before using the charts.

These charts will be available to view on the NELA Webtool Dashboard alongside other charts such as length of stay, consultant presence in theatre and sepsis reporting
