Trauma System Assessment
Posted by Paul Sharpe on 09 October 2015 11:41 AM

The OEMS Division of Trauma/Critical, which is where the VPHIB program is housed, underwent an outside assessment of the Virginia trauma system.  Below is a link to a 37 minute video of the closing of that assessment.  A final report with up to 60 recommendations will be provided sometime during the next month.  We thought this may be of interest to those that utilize Support Suite.

Between September 1, 2015 and September 4, 2015 the Office of EMS underwent a state trauma system assessment.  The ACS utilizes the Model Trauma System Planning and Evaluation guide that utilizes a public health approach to trauma system development and maintenance.

The consultation team performs an "exit interview" and verbally provides an overview of those items they deem as a priority issues in Virginia.  Download the video of the exit interview at the following link:
