Trauma System Development (RTABS)
Oklahoma is undertaking system development using an inclusive system model, meaning the plan addresses the needs of all injured patients and is inclusive of small hospitals as well as large trauma centers.
The components of the Trauma System can be grouped into the following categories:
Trauma regional boundaries which parallel the Homeland Security regions with minor changes were approved following considerable discussion between State Health Department staff, the Oklahoma Hospital Association, the Oklahoma State Trauma Advisory Council, the Oklahoma Emergency Response Systems Development Advisory Council, and other interested parties. Each of the eight trauma regions (see map) has a Regional Trauma Advisory Board charged with developing a Regional Trauma Plan and Continuous Quality Improvement activities.
