Trauma

Grady Memorial Hospital achieves a concurrent trauma data program

Record Closure Rate Did Not Meet the ACS Standard:

  • 955 of the 1,653 records abstracted in-house were completed within 60 days of patient discharge, yielding a concurrency rate of 58% (Figure 1)
  • Concurrency rate fell short of the 80% required by the ACS to define the registry as “concurrent”

Outcomes after Q-Centrix Partnership:

  • Utilizing a partner: 1,522 of the 1,592 records were completed within 60 days of patient discharge, yielding a concurrency rate of 95%
  • Concurrency rate improved to 94% within the first month of record the project and ranged from 93-100% for the remainder of the analysis period
  • Exceeded the 80% required by the ACS to be considered a “concurrent registry”
