Demographic and Clinical Frequency Reports
Clinical Reports can be produced using the EDCR System (Electronic Data Collection and Reporting), which is accessed by member hospitals to collect and submit trauma data. The reports provide outcome of all patients submitted to TARN who have received emergency care and highlights suggested cases for review. The reports can be used for discussion at clinical audit meetings, which in the long term will improve patient care locally, as well as contributing to staff development.
