ACA and Trauma Systems

Recommended Posts

An interesting, and short, read from Johns Hopkins School of Public Health:




A particular salient point made, that I was personally unaware of, "According to the study authors, the funds have yet to be appropriated by Congress. They argue that full funding of these provisions is needed to stabilize statewide trauma systems that are struggling to survive, including those that provide regionalized care for other time-sensitive emergency conditions, such as stroke and heart conditions."


As an aspiring Emergency Medicine PA, I was ignorantly in the dark that there is even debate about funding trauma systems in the United States of all places or that there were current trauma systems that were in need of funding to you know, save lives. Is this a sign of things to come or is this just a transient political tug of war that will abate?
