  • Joint trauma system vital link to saving lives

    A loud explosion hits close, shaking the dust from the walls. Sirens start going off and servicemembers run to check on everyone near the impact site. The 9-line report comes across the net. Helicopter rotors start spinning. The wounded receive their first care from a medic who also completes a Tactical Combat Casualty Care card. A medevac helicopter soon lands to take the wounded to a hospital. While in flight, the medical team generates a Patient Care Record and later fills out an After Action Report. These forms are the first step in data flow to the Joint Theater Trauma System. JTTS team members gather data from combat medical records and upload the data into a registry for analysis by teams in the U.S. The system is guiding developments of best practices across the military medical system including equipment enhancements to help prevent injuries and improvements in care. JTTS also has helped improve pre-hospital, patient movement, medical treatment facility, chronic care and lifelong rehabilitation.
