Utah Department of Public Safety

Performance Improvement

The primary function of data collection and analysis is to improve patient care.  The Department of Public Safety is mandated to establish and maintain a trauma system performance improvement program.  Working in conjunction with local, state and regional stakeholders, the Bureau of Emergency Medical Services has established a performance improvement infrastructure based upon referral patterns that is fluid enough to meet the needs of local communities while still addressing concerns at a state level.
