The EMResource Workgroup is a regional workgroup created by the NCTTRAC Board of Directors to develop an efficient and useful EMResource product for TSA-E. The EMResource Workgroup is composed of representatives from the ED Operations, EMS, Air Medical, REPC, Trauma, Stroke, Cardiac, Pediatrics, Perinatal, Medical Directors, and SPI committees, and reports directly to the NCTTRAC Board of Directors.
The workgroup’s overall charge is to improve NCTTRAC’s EMResource organization, utilization, and system data confidence. The Workgroup will review current configuration and utilization of EMResource, additional functionalities that are availability, and will make recommendations to the Board regarding changes to the web application format. We will also develop supporting regional policies to make EMResource relevant and beneficial. We plan on building on past joint NCTTRAC-DFWHC collaborative efforts to improve patient destination and hospital status information across clinical disciplines.
EMResource Overhaul: Webinars
As the EMResource Workgroup begins reaching the end of the EMResource Overhaul project, NCTTRAC is hosting a webinar to inform EMResource users about the proposed changes to EMResource.
