We had a great time in Columbus on April 27 for the Trauma Data Professionals: The Driving Force of Data Management conference and we hope you did too! It was great to see old friends and make new connections.  We had a wonderful turnout with over 100 attendees from across Ohio and neighboring states. 

Our emcee for the day, Diane Simon, kept the day lively with her humor. Diane presented the patient scenario of the Krash family of four: Ramona, JJ, Jimmy, and Jane Krash, who were involved in a single-vehicle rollover crash. The scenario was used throughout the day.

We started with breaking down the basics. The audience participated in a fun and interactive question and answer session, raising paddles to give their response.

Next up, Kathy Cookman shared her coding expertise, reviewing diagnoses and procedures. Discussion was held on proper ICD-10 and AIS coding based on the information provided in the medical chart for each of the Krash family "patients."IMG_3750.jpg

Wanda Bowen and her colleague Samantha Baker discussed data sharing and reporting.  They identified different tools for presenting data and provided tips and tricks to simplify the data. 

Carrie Lang's enthusiastic delivery on performance improvement (PI) kept the attendees engaged, learning about the importance of PI and how to use it within your system. 

Olivia Houck took us through the roadway to research, explaining types of research, benefits, examples, and much more.

We ended the day with a lively presentation by Jill Jakubus on data validation.

This event wouldn't have been as successful without the generous support of our sponsors:
