This week ACC, as lead sponsor of the Major Trauma National Clinical Network, reached agreement with the Health Quality and Safety Commission (the Commission) to support the national programme of work by delivering:
- quality improvement across the trauma system, to create a system that learns and evolves
- analytics and research so our work is data-driven and based on evidence
- a long-term outcomes survey to enable us to understand how injured people cope at home so we can better support their recovery.
The three-way partnership between the Commission, ACC and the Major Trauma National Clinical Network signals a five-year relationship where we will work together to realise our goals of fewer deaths due to trauma, less disability for those that survive, and cost savings across the health system. This agreement is a significant milestone in our efforts to achieve a world-class trauma system in New Zealand.
