Welcome to the Florida TQIP Collaborative. The Florida Committee on Trauma is leading the development of a Florida collaborative to improve the quality of care for trauma patients in Florida and link the trauma community to the Florida Trauma System Advisory Council.
Mission: The Florida TQIP Collaborative works collaboratively with all Florida trauma centers to provide careful analysis of statewide quality data to identify opportunities for improvement that will allow all Florida trauma centers to provide the highest quality of trauma care for its citizens and visitors.
Vision: The Florida TQIP Collaborative will strive to improve quality of trauma care to reduce morbidity and mortality while reducing healthcare costs of trauma care across all trauma centers in Florida so that Florida trauma centers are the nation’s leaders in trauma care.
