Physician service time varies with patient service category, length of stay, and intensity of service.
Prospective time study of emergency physician services.
Physicians recorded the beginning and ending times of each service episode offered to a patient (whether at the bedside or occurring elsewhere in the department).
Each episode was defined as an « interaction, » with the total service time offered to a patient being the sum of all interactions for that patient.
Length of stay was the time interval from when the patient registered in the emergency department to when the patient was released.
Intensity of service was calculated as service time divided by length of stay.
