The four hospitals currently participating in the IN TQIP Collaborative are: Deaconess Hospital, Evansville; IU Health methodist Hospital, Indianapolis; Lutheran Hospital of Indiana, Fort Wayne; and Memorial Hospital, South Bend. The first Collaborative report is scheduled to be released during Spring 2021.
TQIP accomplishes its work by collecting data from your trauma center, providing feedback about your center’s performance, and identifying institutional characteristics that your trauma center staff can implement to improve patient outcomes. The program uses risk-adjusted benchmarking to provide your hospital with accurate comparisons. TQIP also provides education and training to help your trauma center staff improve the quality of your data and accurately interpret your benchmark reports.
You can network and share information about best practices with other trauma professionals at the TQIP annual meeting, through the TQIP Google group, and in regular web conferences.
