What is a RETAC?

RETAC stands for Regional EMS/Trauma Advisory Council. RETAC's were formed by Colorado Revised Statute in 2001. The Northeast Colorado RETAC was formed through a coaltion of County Commissioners, Trauma Centers and EMS agencies in the fall/winter of 2000-2001. A series of meetings were held with the elected officials who determined the representative counties. Historical working relationships were considered along with patient flow patterns to determine what would be best for the patient and would provide a continuity of operations with the combining of existing EMS Regional systems development, (High Plains Regional EMS Council) and Trauma Systems Regional Development. (Northeast Colorad ATAC)

The region is just over 17,000 square miles of territory; 5,000 square miles larger than Maryland and 7,000 square miles smaller than Virginia. 

Geographic as well as demographic diversity both challenge and strengthen the region. Counties that have less that one person per square mile to counties that have endured double digit growth in between censuses. The region has one National Park, numerous state parks, two interstate highways and shares common borders with 3 different states.

The Northeast Colorado RETAC borders encompass 19 EMS transport services; 3 flight services and 16 ground; calls for service range from approximately 50 per year for the smaller services to well over 20,000 per year for the larger services. 13 designated trauma centers 2 designated at a Level II, 4 designated at Level III, and 7 designated at Level IV. In addition there are over 100 EMS non transport services ranging from full time fire, volunteer fire and law enforcement.

Patient care remains first and foremost in the goals. To make this happen it is important to find mechanisms where Emergency Medical and Trauma Systems providers to work together to meet changes with an organized approach. Each RETAC in the state of Colorado is a liaison between the providers of care and the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment.

NCRETAC Ground Transport Rate Study

The third party.. The Northeast Colorado RETAC provides the following in accordance with..

http://www.justice.gov/atr/public/guidelines/0000.htm#CONTNUM_43

Specifically;

Statement 5 - Providers' Collective Provision Of Fee-Related Information To Purchasers Of Health Care Services.................................43


In assembling information to be collectively provided to purchasers, providers need to be aware of the potential antitrust consequences of information exchanges among competitors. The principles expressed in the Agencies' statement on provider participation in exchanges of price and cost information are applicable in this context. Accordingly, in order to qualify for this safety zone, the collection of information to be provided to purchasers must satisfy the following conditions:

(1) the collection is managed by a third party (e.g., a purchaser, government agency, health care consultant, academic institution, or trade association);

(2) although current fee-related information may be provided to purchasers, any information that is shared among or is available to the competing providers furnishing the data must be more than three months old; and

(3) for any information that is available to the providers furnishing data, there are at least five providers reporting data upon which each disseminated statistic is based, no individual provider's data may represent more than 25 percent on a weighted basis of that statistic, and any information disseminated must be sufficiently aggregated such that it would not allow recipients to identify the prices charged by any individual provider.
