NCTTRAC Chair Jorie Klein has approved the creation of a new EMResource Work Group (WG) that will report directly to the NCTTRAC Board. Kris Powell RN has been appointed to be the Workgroup Lead. We are requesting that the ED Ops, EMS, Air Medical, REPC, Trauma, Stroke, Cardiac, Pediatrics, Perinatal, Med Directors, and SPI committees have consistent presence in the workgroup by either the Committee Chair or Chair-Elect.
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. An optimized EMResource application and utilization will (1) improve patient outcomes by strengthening EMS and Hospital decision support, (2) enhanced visibility of regional capabilities for broadened disaster support in regional patient destination and transportation management, and (3) timely status information that integrates with WebEOC for effective coordination with Emergency Management. The EMResource WG will have prioritized staff support and visibility at the Board level.
