2023 ESO Trauma Index

Insights and Best Practices for Hospitals and Trauma Centers

Want to see how your organization stacks up to the national average when it comes to patient care?

The 2023 Trauma Index was designed to be a point of reference for both hospital and trauma centers who want to identify where they align with other organizations throughout the U.S. and where they can improve.

The Trauma Index uses ESO data compiled from nearly 596 participating organizations and represents 968,538 patient records from January 1 through December 31, 2022.

Use it as a guide to help your own data answer questions such as:

  • Should we evaluate how we use whole blood versus packed red blood cells for traumatic injuries?
  • Are we administering antibiotics early enough to reduce infections and complications when treating open long bone fractures?
  • Are we moving geriatric patients with hip fractures to the OR quickly enough or do we need to reevaluate our practices?
  • What do different values of systolic blood pressure and shock index indicate in penetrating trauma victims?
  • How effectively are we at mitigating and reducing common hospital events (such as unplanned admission to the ICU and delirium) compared to national data?
  • When it comes to the Injury Severity Score, how do our mortality rates align with the national average?
