Sending Outcome Data to EMS Using the Wisconsin Trauma Registry and ImageTrend Hospital Hub

Did you know that the Wisconsin Trauma Care Registry has the option of sending hospital patient outcome information to EMS providers who transport patients to your facility? The state utilizes ImageTrend, LLC as the software provider for Elite, the EMS database and Patient Registry, the Wisconsin Trauma Registry. Trauma care facilities can choose to provide hospital patient outcome data to the EMS database on patients transported to your facility by your prehospital partners. This information could be used to assist in pre-hospital agency training, education, and quality improvement activities. This recording provides detail regarding the EMS outcome data channel. To turn on the reporting option of sending hospital patient outcome information to your pre-hospital partners who transport patients to your facility, the trauma coordinator or trauma program manager at each trauma care facility must send an email of notification to stating this to the Trauma Registry Data Manager.
