Trauma Team Notification System
As part of the 2014/15 work plan, the Institute of Trauma and Injury Management (ITIM) identified through data analysis the need for information to be provided to trauma teams regarding the impending or actual arrival of a trauma patient to be more efficient, reliable and useful. From this ITIM commenced a project to address this – the Trauma OnePush project.
By decreasing the time from scene to Trauma Team notification and increasing the speed and accuracy of information sent to Team members, it is anticipated that the Trauma OnePush project will lead to increased patient safety and outcome, whilst ensuring a multidisciplinary approach to patient care.
This project will provide a solution in improving notification systems for Regional Trauma Services (RTS) or Major Trauma Services (MTS), allowing for improved trauma patient outcomes with the early inclusion and notification of a traumatically injured patient arrival in the emergency department. This has been shown to decrease mortality and length of stay.
