About the Indicator

As more Californians live longer lives, there is a need for more health care informed by geriatric expertise. Patterns of emergency department utilization help to demonstrate this need and how it varies around the state and over time.

This indicator measures the share of emergency department visits that are made by older adults. As this share increases, the need for emergency departments with geriatric expertise also increases.
