Table 7 Simulation results for hotspots with changing peak height

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
Peak 20 117 89 281 280
Peak 40 407 634 725 968
Peak 80 930 1000 997 1000
  1. The performance results for each method over the 1000 simulations for the same hotspot type but with changing peak height.
