Dr. Eiman Zaragaran – Trauma Reporting
Dr. Zaragaran, with his research supervisor created a tablet based solution to be used by front line trauma clinicians in Cape Town so they could complete their charting duties at the point of care.
He was inspired to find this solution while on rotation in Cape Town and was met with a large backlog of trauma records and out of date database.
Since implementation in the spring of 2014, the app — which also analyzes the initial assessment, resuscitation, operation and discharge data to generate a real-time and self-populating trauma registry — has logged well over 15,000 trauma patients.
