Rapid Treatment Area (RTA)

A rapid treatment area (RTA) is an identified space, typically close to triage in the emergency department, which is used to help manage patient flow and throughput. A successful RTA allows for continual forward progression for patients which decreases wait times, decompresses waiting rooms and increases patient satisfaction. When an RTA is utilized, patients are efficiently assessed, a medical screening exam (MSE) is performed and necessary diagnostic testing is initiated shortly after a patient arrives.
