Trauma centers use the performance improvement process to drive meaningful outcomes for patients. Join panelists from various trauma centers and their EMS counterparts as they discuss the partnerships that they've established.  Incorporating EMS in the PIPS (performance improvement and patient safety) process fosters a culture of transparency that leads to excellence in care and outcomes. This presentation will describe what EMS providers and agencies can and should expect from their trauma centers as it relates to performance improvement. We will discuss different avenues for providing feedback, including letters, multidisciplinary peer review, video review and debrief, and integrated education and simulation opportunities.
