What is the TCD System?

Missouri’s Time Critical Diagnosis System brings together the 911 emergency response system, emergency responders and hospitals in an integrated and coordinated approach to provide a quicker response to trauma, stroke and heart attack and improve survival and recovery from these events.

The new system builds on the Missouri’s existing trauma system, which identifies specific hospitals as trauma centers specially equipped for the treatment of serious injuries. The Time Critical Diagnosis System also now includes hospitals designated as specially equipped to treat stroke and STEMI, a specific type of heart attack.
