The EMS providers are a part of our Trauma Quality Management and Trauma Multidisciplinary meeting's, each trauma patient is looked at for Quality issues throughout the continuum of care,  pre hospital is one area. 
Issues identified are sent to the various Field training Officers for follow up, We talk to Field Training Officers directly: and if we send an e mail then it is encrypted. Typically we use the EMS run number and our registry number for patient ID not names, feedback and loop closure is provided by these officers to the above quality meetings.
We follow various indicators for pre hospital. 
I am also a member of the various EMS medical quality committees.

The Trauma Program here at Penn State-Hershey sends out a letter to the agencies with a diagnosis, outcome (vent days, days in ICU) and date discharged.
There is a contact number given for providers/agencies to contact if they have any further questions or if they want to discuss the case.
Hope this helps.

      Does anyone have any current process in place for pre-hospital providers to follow up on trauma patients that were cared for in the field. What are / may be the issues that would have to be considered (including hippa) How do you would you structure this program. This would be intended for QA / QI and to give feedback to EMS providers primarily. What are the unintended consequences?  What should be included in the feedback as a learning tool v just telling what the patients injuries were.  
      Shock Trauma - R Adams... had one years ago   before 1999 that
would allow EMS to querry what happened to their patient whenafter transported. While pretty basic in informationI thought it was helpful in the couple times I filled out the form and allowed me to reflect on my treatment...  email me directly or place comments on list. Thanks.

  No Level I studies. This is the only MA that is specific to critically ill pts. The full manuscript was recently accepted in Intensive Care Medicine, and should be released on-line soon.
