A new methodology is presented for evaluating the extent to which patients within regionalized systems of trauma care are treated at the appropriate hospitals.
Criteria are proposed for retrospectively classifying trauma patients as to whether they should have been treated at a trauma center.
The criteria were developed by a panel of nationally recognized trauma experts and are based on the age of the patient and the type and AIS severity of injuries sustained.
The criteria were then applied to uniformly collected data available for all trauma discharges in 1988 from acute care hospitals in a state with a well developed system of regionalized trauma care.
According to the criteria, 19% of all trauma discharges in 1988 should have been treated at trauma centers.
