Arkansas Trauma Registry (ATR)
The Arkansas Trauma Registry (ATR) is designed to develop and maintain a statewide trauma data collection and evaluation system (ref. ACT 559, The Trauma System ACT, Section 6a). The Arkansas Trauma Registry will provide the data to identify and drive process improvement activities that will reduce morbidity and mortality from traumatic events. The overall trauma system will help ensure that each victim of trauma is transported to the appropriate trauma facility and receives proper care.
What is a Trauma Registry?
A trauma registry is a data collection system composed of uniform data elements that describe the injury event, demographics, pre-hospital information, diagnosis, care and outcomes of injured patients. The purpose of the trauma registry is to obtain, code, and sort this information for analysis, and reporting individual and aggregate results. Registry data is used for performance improvement, medical research, statistical analysis, critical pathways, care coordination, epidemiological and injury prevention.
