The CMS data that was alluded to can be found on www.hbr-inc.com/clients/medicare.aspx. Marty Herman et al had published our visit level acuity profile and E&M distribution in the June 2006 issue of Pediatr Emerg Care. We are tertiary level pediatric ED with an annual census of 70K visits and an admission rate of ~12-15%.
Hope this helps.
