The EMS Commission's Triage and Transportation Rule permits hospitals to be considered "trauma centers" if the hospital is either:
The EMS Commission partners with the Indiana State Trauma Care Committee (ISTCC) to review "in the process of ACS verification" applications. The ISTCC/State Health Commissioner reviews the hospital's application. The State Health Commissioner then recommends to the EMS Commission whether a hospital should be considered a "trauma center" for this Rule's purposes. The "In the process of ACS verification" process application is available on the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (EMS Commission) website. Hospitals must provide sufficient documentation for the ISDH to conclude that the hospital complies with a series of requirements. The provisional trauma center status shall not exceed 2 years from the date the provisional status begins. If the hospital is not able to become verified a trauma center within that 2-year period:
As of April 2014, all "in the process of ACS verification" trauma centers must complete a 1 year review to ensure the hospital is on track to becoming verified within the 2 year period.
If your hospital was granted "in the process of ACS verification" status BEFORE DECEMBER 12, 2014, complete a 1 year review checklist and supporting documents. These documents will be sent to the Trauma Program Manager listed on the "In the process of ACS verification" application by the Director of the Division of Trauma and Injury Prevention at ISDH two months before the documents are due.
If your hospital was granted "in the process of ACS verification" status AFTER DECEMBER 12, 2014, complete the updated 1 year review checklist and supporting documents.These documents will be sent to the Trauma Program Manager listed on the "In the process of ACS verification" application by the Director of the Division of Trauma and Injury Prevention at ISDH two months before the documents are due.
Please note: always check the ACS website to ensure you schedule your Consultation/Verification visits in time!
The Designation subcommittee advises the ISDH on all matters regarding state designation. They helped the EMS Commission create the guidelines for the "in the process of ACS verification" trauma center status, review applications and 1 year review documents, and make recommendations to the ISTCC. The ISTCC designation subcommittee will also help draft the state's trauma center designation rule. If you are interested in joining the Designation subcommittee, please contact the Director of Trauma and Injury Prevention, Katie Hokanson: firstname.lastname@example.org .
