The Mississippi Collector Registry software enables Mississippi Department of Health personnel to electronically collect, manage and report Trauma System data. Data is used to identify, design and implement mechanisms to reduce trauma, ultimately improving health care for the citizens of Mississippi.
The software application assists hospital staff with performance improvement activities within the hospital. The data collected allows the hospital to monitor and improve its trauma program, as well as track trauma patients that are transported to and/or from their facilities. This data that a Trauma Center must capture is required in order to maintain an effective trauma program. The application also enables the hospital to submit its data via VPN to the State's database, as well as enables the regions to pull data from the State's database for hospitals in their respective region. The region can use the data to develop and monitor pre-hospital triage protocols, transfer agreements, and policies. The State can also use the data to generate statistical reports for use in injury prevention activities, legislative initiatives, and monitoring of the Trauma Care Trust Fund. In addition, the State submits its data to the National Trauma Data Bank which is the largest aggregation of trauma registry data ever assembled. The National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB) now contains nearly four million records from US trauma centers. NTDB is used for national reporting on trauma, hospital benchmarking, the ACS TQIP, and is the basis of much research about trauma care. The goal of the NTDB is to inform the medical community, the public, and decision makers about a wide variety of issues that characterize the current state of care for injured persons.

Trauma Registry Standard Reports
Collector's integrated Report Writer and Query Tool allow users to perform both simple and advanced queries and data analysis, without database or programming skills. Standard user reports include Z score, TRISS, ISS, ACS Audit summary and many more. These reports help the trauma program manager/trauma registrar identify performance improvement issues at their local Trauma Center. Digital Innovation's Collector provides the ability to include any additional reports that are specified by the user based on any data field populated in the system. These reports can also identify injury prevention areas the Trauma Center should focus on. The Collector system also has considerable capabilities for performing regional and central-site analysis on aggregated trauma registry data with many unique user-friendly features.
