Trauma care can be improved through the accumulation of local, regional, and state trauma statistics.
The efforts to develop a National Trauma Registry in the United States are still in their infancy.
A four-page survey questionnaire was returned by each of the 50 State Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Directors, as well as the EMS Directors of the District of Columbia and five American possessions, to evaluate the status of state trauma registries in the United States.
In 1992,24 (48%) states had a registry.
Development costs average $101,107 and annual maintenance costs averaged $72,105.
An average of 1.7 fulltime equivalents (FTE) was necessary to maintain the registry.
