The trauma registry (https://indianatrauma.isdh.in.gov/) is a core component of any statewide trauma system. The Indiana Trauma Registry is a repository into which statewide trauma data has been brought together to support three foundational activities: identification of the trauma population, statewide process improvement activities, and research. The Indiana Trauma Registry was implemented in 2007, with initial participation by the seven hospitals in Indiana that were verified by the American College of Surgeons as Level I or Level II trauma centers.
Several other Indiana hospitals actively submit data to the state trauma registry. Ramzi Nimry is the Trauma System Performance Improvement Manager of the ISDH division of trauma and injury prevention. For hospitals interested in learning more about the trauma registry, Ramzi can be reached at 317-234-7321 or mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org.
The software vendor chosen for the registry is ImageTrend from Minneapolis, MN. ImageTrend has also been selected to provide a repository for EMS data. The combination of EMS and trauma data allows Indiana to develop a more robust data system with which we can create a better statewide trauma system.
All hospitals with Emergency Departments are asked to report their data on a quarterly basis. The quarterly data reporting schedule:
|Patient Admission Date Range||Report Due Date|
|July 1, 2014 - September 30, 2014||January 15, 2015|
|October 1, 2014 - December 31, 2014||May 1, 2015|
|January 1, 2015 - March 30, 2015||June 30, 2015|
|April 1, 2015 - June 30, 2015||September 30, 2015|
|July 1, 2015 - September 30, 2015||January 15, 2016|
