ARTICLE II – MISSION

Because trauma is a disease affecting all ages of people, the impact on life years lost is equal to the life years lost from cancer, heart disease and HIV combined.


Finkelstein, E.A., Corso, P.S., & Miller, T.R. The Incidence and Economic Burden of Injuries in the United States.

Traumatic injuries increase the demand on Wisconsin’s healthcare resources. A fourth of all Emergency Department visits are related to traumatic injuries. In 2002, there were 934 injury-related hospitalizations per 100,000.

The North East Wisconsin RTAC is dedicated to designing, implementing, and evaluating a regional trauma system that is data-based, confidential, and sensitive to the needs, limitations, and resources of this area. Our focus is on injury prevention, reducing the severity of injuries, and decreasing the number of deaths. Our objective is to optimize the quality of care and outcomes for all trauma patients. The patient is the focus of this organization. We also believe that education of trauma providers on all levels is essential.  

The North East Wisconsin Regional Trauma Advisory Council (NEWRTAC) is empowered by the State Trauma Advisory Council (STAC) as an essential component of the infrastructure of the Wisconsin Statewide Trauma Care System responsible for protocol development, education, data analysis and performance improvement. The enabling legislation is WI 1997 Act 154 with the Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services (DHFS) serving as the lead agency for plan development and implementation.
