"Outcome prediction in trauma"
Trauma is the leading cause of death amongst the young population (18 – 40 yrs). TARN is the largest trauma registry in Europe (400,000 records), its role is to help emergency health care systems to improve the care of their trauma patients by providing them with useful information regarding their performance using different indicators and process measures. I will be presenting the statistical methods used for hospitals outcome performance by means of a directly standardised statistic: Ws, that represents the excess survivor rate per 100. Outcome performance will be displayed using caterpillar and funnel plots where hospital outliers will be identified. A graphical representation based on CUSUM technique and variable life adjusted display (VLAD) that signal bad and good runs will be presented.
