The medical discipline is uniquely linked to the speed and real time environment of computer mediated information management. The three phases of trauma care (pre-hospital; hospital; and post- acute/rehabilitation) are based upon a philosophy of a continuum of care, which in turn necessitates a continuum of information. Trauma Informatics will be the first book to cover the subject of information systems in the treatment of trauma patients through the three phases of trauma. Since the book covers Trauma from incident through return to work, any of the providers, managers, and support staff who are involved in using, collecting or managing information will benefit from this comprehensive approach to trauma informatics. Contents include: urban pre-hospital phase; rural pre-hospital phase; vehicle crash investigation; informatics in the emergency department; informatics in emergency radiology; informatics in the intensive care unit; rehabiliation; and hospital, state, and national trauma registries.
