Advanced Technologies and Wireless Telecommunications Enhance Care and Medical Training at the Ryder Trauma Center in Miami
Date:12/3/2008

is geared toward lowering the preventable death rate by speeding up the delivery of trauma care during the "golden hour," the critical 60 minutes after an injury. Jackson Memorial Hospital sees more than 8,000 emergency patients per year -- approx. 4, 000 at the Ryder Trauma Center. Approximately 30 percent of the general admissions result from gunshot wounds, stabbings or falls and 70 percent are the result of blunt trauma, vehicular accidents and various other causes. Children make up approx. 10 percent of all patients seen at the center. Since its founding in 1992, the Ryder Trauma Center and its medical staff have developed a worldwide reputation for clinical excellence. Surgical and medical teams from throughout the United States and the Caribbean, as well as from Russia, Japan, England, Italy and France, have visited the 44-story, free-standing, 166,000- square-foot trauma center to study advanced trauma care.

Today, the Ryder Trauma Center is the centerpiece of Miami-Dade County's trauma care system, offering world-class clinical care to all residents, regardless of ability to pay. As an integral part of Jackson Memorial Hospital -- which is operated by the county's Public Health Trust -- the Ryder Trauma Center draws upon both the specialized resources of the hospital and the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.

The Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center, a component of the U.S. Army Medical Research & Materiel Command (USAMRMC) located at Fort Detrick, Maryland, executes a Congressional Special Interest Program of medical science and engineering technology research that maximizes benefits to military medicine.

The American Telemedicine Association is the leading resource and advocate promoting access to medical care for consumers and health professionals via telecommunications technology. The ATA seeks to bring together diverse groups from traditio
