Arkansas Trauma System

The Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) is the agency responsible for implementing and maintaining the Trauma System, which originated from Act 393.  As such, ADH ensures a multitude of duties in the provision of ensuring an optimal Trauma System. One is to ensure that grant funds reach hospitals and emergency service (EMS) providers. Another is to create rules regarding the operation of the Trauma System throughout the State. Additionally, the Trauma System creates and maintains a communications system to be used by hospitals and EMS providers, as well as providing for an Arkansas Trauma Call Center (ATCC). As part of the ATCC upkeep, ADH ensures that education is provided to ATCC individuals and entities, as they play crucial roles in the Trauma System.  Trauma also works closely with the Trauma Advisory Council (TAC), which provides guidance and advice to ADH regarding the Trauma System implementation and ongoing operations. In addition, the TAC conducts other liaison activities with a wide variety of individuals and groups that have an interest in the Trauma System.
