About the Coalition
Houston Trauma LINK is a local coalition formed in 2000 to reduce the morbidity and mortality of childhood injuries in Houston/Harris County, Texas through sharing information, data and expertise. Baylor College of Medicine is the coordinating institution.
The HTL Coalition works to integrate existing data sources to provide a local pediatric injury data system that supports injury prevention activities. Through a collaborative approach, the coalition's vision is to facilitate data sharing between community partners for the purpose of identifying emerging injury patterns and risk factors in the Houston/Harris County, Texas area and to encourage the implementation and evaluation of data-driven interventions for the control of pediatric injuries.
Coalition funding was provided through a grant from Texas Department of Transportation and in-kind contributions from Baylor College of Medicine Department of Pediatrics, Section of Emergency Medicine.
