American College of Surgeons trauma quality indicators : an analysis of outcome in a statewide trauma registry. Discussion.
American Association for the Surgery of Trauma. Annual session. New Orleans LA USA, 1993/09/23.
Quality assurance/quality improvement (QA-QI) is a priority for maintaining the highest standards of care in trauma systems.
To be an effective tool for system review, the QA-QI indicators should identify patients with higher rates of morbidity and mortality from injury.
While the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Operations have identified certain audit filters within the trauma system, there are few data to substantiate the value of these audit filters for trauma care.
The purpose of this study was to analyze the ability of the ACS trauma indicators to predict adverse patient outcome following injury requiring review.
The study population consisted of 44,019 patients from the North Carolina State Trauma Registry from 1987 to 1992.
