Statewide Trauma System
Michigan is currently in the process of developing a statewide all-inclusive trauma system. The goal of which is to establish criteria for identifying and categorizing the trauma resources of all hospitals in Michigan. In addition, adult and pediatric triage and transport guidelines are being established to help insure that patients receive optimal care during the critical "golden hour".
The collection of all trauma data is a critical element of creating this system, and all hospitals that receive trauma patients will collect and submit data to a state trauma data bank, which will allow for the linking of pre-hospital and hospital data to assist in evaluating system performance, education, and injury prevention needs, as well as to link with other databases to facilitate syndromic surveillance.
