UCLA Receives Six UC Health Quality Grants to Improve Hospital Care
Date:7/15/2011

arce. Dr. William Mower, a UCLA professor of emergency medicine, and his colleagues received $375,000 to create a decision-making process that will help practitioners analyze key signs, allowing them to differentiate patients who could likely have injuries requiring a CT scan from those with no risk of those types of injuries. The grant will allow the researchers to identify the key clinical signs that a patient has internal chest injuries in order to make the selection process practicable in emergency and hospital settings.

The group will create teams at each UC medical center to collect data and create tools to enhance performance and prevention rates.
