Data-Driven Approach Improves Evidence-Based Trauma Care

Mission Health trauma services provide evidence-based care. Despite its efforts to measure the impact of this care on outcomes, the overwhelming burden of manual data review limited its ability to effectively monitor key process measures in a timely manner. This prompted Mission to use data and analytics for timely insights into injury-specific process measure performance and concurrent chart review to improve trauma care.

Featured Outcomes

  • 4.4 percent mortality rate for patients with a traumatic spleen injury, well below the 7 to 18 percent national average.
  • 3.8 percent mortality rate for patients with a rib fracture, well below the 10 percent national average.
