Trauma e-Registry
last updated 10-04-2016

Overview

Injury and violence are major public health issues, accounting for over 5 million deaths a year and many other non-fatal outcomes. The Injury data systems, at the country level, are a key foundation of the public health approach for preventing injuries. To Promote wider and more standardized data collection for injury surveillance, and to promote best practices and policy-level changes for system-wide improvements in care of the injured; PNIPH is leading an initiative to establish the National Injury Surveillance system with close cooperation with the Ministry of Health.

Progress and Improvements

In order to establish a minimum dataset to facilitate the establishment of trauma e-registry, the PNIPH:

  • Prepared the List of Injury Surveillance indicators;
  • Prepared the registry forms for both new visits and follow-up visits.
  • Started the pilot implementation in two governmental hospitals.
  • PNIPH is now building an electronic patient base registry using a web application technology.

An application for funding of the infrastructure and the rolling out of the project in primary and secondary health services has been submitted to the Norwegian Representative Office and got approved. The project implementation will be conducted in different phases including the development phase.
