Across our country, it is vital for us to stand up in every way that we can to help improve outcomes for injured patients. This is the only way to achieve our nation’s goal of Zero Preventable Deaths.
This requires innovation and analytics to be accessible in as near real time as possible so changes in protocols and procedures are discovered and implemented in mere weeks—not months or years.
It has been shown that an injured patient’s chance of survival can vary almost 300% across our nation depending on the trauma center that treats them. Through analytics, we can identify the sources of these variations and make steadfast progress to raise all trauma centers to the level of performance of our nation’s greatest providers.
The trauma vendor community has been called upon by the National Academy of Sciences report to do our part in driving technical innovations. In response, we established this website to serve as a unified messaging platform for driving innovation, interoperability, and analytics in support of the injured patient.
This is the vision behind the Stand Up for PI initiative: to bring trauma leadership together around a common vision of extensive interoperability for the public good.
The American College of Surgeons (ACS) has revised requirements for participation in risk-adjusted benchmarking programs.
