Utah Department of Health & Human Services

Performance Improvement

The primary function of data collection and analysis is to improve patient care.  The Department of Health and Human Services is mandated to establish and maintain a trauma system performance improvement program.  Working in conjunction with local, state and regional stakeholders, the Office of Emergency Medical Services and Preparedness 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.
