Trauma Registry
 

Oklahoma Statute requires the State Health Department to develop and monitor a data collection system for trauma (Section 1-2511 of Title 63). The Trauma Registry was developed pursuant to that requirement. It is a database that contains detailed information about injuries that meet a specified level of severity. This information is submitted by hospitals.

Reports can be run on the data contained in the trauma registry. These reports may be designed to answer specific questions such as:

  • Trends in type of injury;
  • Demographic profile of injured individuals;
  • Geographic distribution of traumatic injuries;
  • Economic impact of traumatic injury;
  • Outcome of traumatic injuries.

The ability to gather, analyze and utilize this type of data is vitally important to successful implementation and improvement of a trauma system. This data can be utilized to develop injury prevention strategies, treatment protocols and perform quality improvement activities.
