In 2014, the South Dakota Trauma System implemented regional performance improvement (PI). PI is a retrospective look at the care of the trauma patient from initial injury to tertiary care. As part of the designation process, hospitals have established performance improvement review committees in place and actively seek opportunity to further improve the care of the trauma patient; albeit, at a local level.
Regional PI allows for several hospitals, involved health care professionals, and the state trauma system to look at the care of such patients from a regional perspective. This process allows for networking, information sharing, and improved collaboration among all hospital systems in South Dakota.
