NEWRTAC is committed in developing, implementing, monitoring, and improving the regional trauma system of Northeast Wisconsin.
NEWRTAC Mission Statement
The Northeast 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 purpose of a Regional Trauma Advisory Council is to develop, implement, monitor and improve the regional trauma system. The functions and responsibility of the RTAC are delineated in DHS 118.06. RTAC programming efforts are funded through state tax dollars (GPR) by the State Trauma Program through Appropriation 101.
