Proposed Project: State-by-State Self Assessment of Trauma Care Systems—(NEW)
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) proposes to collect baseline data from the 56 States and Territories on their current trauma care systems and self-identified unmet needs to achieve minimum standards for a comprehensive statewide trauma care program. This information will be used to establish a national strategy to assist in future grant opportunities to the States to improve or enhance their basic systems infrastructure in trauma care. The survey includes an assessment of trauma care systems, readiness to participate in disaster relief efforts, and infrastructure development needs. HRSA's Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) and the Office of Rural Health Policy and the Department of Transportation's Emergency Medical Services Division are jointly administering this project. HRSA has included national performance measures for Trauma/EMS for this project in accordance with the requirements of the “Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) of 1993” (Public Law 103-62). This act requires the establishment of measurable goals for Federal programs that can be reported as part of the budgetary process, thus linking funding decisions with performance.
The estimated response burden is as follows:
