The Nationwide Inpatient Sample1(NIS) and Nationwide Emergency Department Sample2 (NEDS) produced by HCUP include data on hospital stays and disposition of patients from hospital and ED visits. This information is used to provide an estimate of the cost related to hospitalization, and the need for additional care by some patients.
