Statewide quality improvement program helps lower rates of trauma complications

10 junio 2015

A team of trauma surgeons has reported how data from a statewide quality collaborative helped them reduce the rate of a serious trauma complication by more than half. The researchers examined the rate of venous thromboembolism (VTE) events in trauma patients. VTEs include blood clots forming inside veins, also known as deep venous thrombosis (DVT).
