NOTS Researchers - Working Hard To Improve Patients Outcomes

Research continues to be an important part of NOTS.

According to the National Institutes of Health, research is defined as a “systematic investigation, including research development, testing and evaluation, designed to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge.”

Using a multidisciplinary approach, we focus on trauma-related research. Our goal is to work collaboratively to improve trauma patient outcomes and to decrease mortality and morbidity.

NOTS Mechanism of Injury

In order to help evaluate the NOTS regional data for the annual report, in regards to mechanism of injury, NOTS has developed their own mechanism on injuries categories. All NOTS hospitals pick a NOTS mechanism when coding a chart on top of the ICD 10 external cause codes needed for state, NTDB and TQIP. This helps our data specialist review injury mechanism for the region. This helps the most with falls, we have recognized that falls with ICD 10 have many codes and can become very specific. For example, the NOTS fall categories are same level fall, greater than 10 feet, less than 10 feet, and not further specified (NFS).
