Table 8 Simulation results for hotspots with changing duration

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 at Day 3 109 61 303 261
Peak at Day 7 407 634 725 968
Peak at Day 14 721 981 922 1000
Peak at Day 21 873 1000 977 1000
  1. The performance results for each method over the 1000 simulations for the same hotspot type but with changing hotspot duration.
