Governor Pence signed the Trauma Registry rule into law on October 25, 2013. It requires all pre-hospital (EMS) transport providers, hospitals with emergency departments and the State's seven rehabilitation hospitals to report trauma cases to the ISDH trauma registry. The rule became effective November 24, 2013. The rule was preliminarily adopted by the ISDH Executive Board in January 2013 and a public hearing was held July 29, 2013. The full text of the Trauma Registry rule can be found at: http://www.in.gov/legislative/iac/20131120-IR-410120617FRA.xml.pdf
The requirement that EMS transport providers submit data to the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS) is unchanged by the Trauma Registry rule; EMS transport providers must report their data to both agencies. The ISDH Trauma and Injury Prevention Division is planning statewide training events for all those required by the rule to submit data. If you are interested in receiving training on the trauma registry, contact Trauma Registry Manager Katie Gatz, firstname.lastname@example.org, 317-234-2865 or Murray Lawry, email@example.com, 317-233-7695.
