Indiana Patient Registry
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.
Today, more than 100+ hospitals in Indiana with emergency departments are actively submitting data to the state trauma registry on a quarterly basis. Ramzi Nimry is the Statewide Trauma System Development and Training 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 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.
*The Indiana Trauma Registry follows the National Trauma Data Standards (NTDS) set by the American College of Surgeons and the Committee on Trauma on a yearly basis https://www.facs.org/quality-programs/trauma/tqp/center-programs/ntdb/ntds. This includes the collection of required elements set by both bodies but also may inlcude any additional elements set by the Indiana Trauma Registry.*
