Table 5 Simulation results for hotspots across the whole Flu group and a subgroup

From: Detecting and diagnosing hotspots for the enhanced management of hospital emergency departments in Queensland, Australia

Hotspot Number found by hotspot peak Number found by hotspot end
Univariate control chart Surveillance tree Univariate control chart Surveillance tree
a. All flu cases 839 282 971 770
b. Subgroup of flu cases 824 899 972 998
  1. The performance results for each method over the 1000 simulations for two hotspots: one over the whole Flu disease group, the other over the subgroup of Flu cases aged 2-12 and with departure status admitted.
