Trauma System Fund Development Applications FY 2019
The Governor’s Task Force Report stated that a trauma system matches the needs of the traumatically injured person to the facility with the resources to treat the patient and achieve the best possible outcome. A trauma system is an organized, pre-planned approach to caring for the severely injured patient, which facilitates optimal outcomes (i.e., life vs. death, health vs. disability). It includes a continuum of care: injury prevention, emergency medical services, community hospital emergency departments, hospital-based trauma centers, hospital inpatient care, rehabilitation, and outpatient follow-up treatment. Applicants for funding must address how proposed projects will provide support to trauma system development in New Mexico and are in alignment with the New Mexico Department of Health Strategic Plan as presented in the TSFA System Development Application appendix.
