  • The trauma registry is the backbone to every trauma center, and the trauma registrars are valued team members. They work closely with the Trauma Medical Director, Trauma Program Manager, and Trauma Nurse Clinicians.
  • Required and custom data elements are housed in the registry. In order for this data to be used for performance improvement, injury prevention, and research, the trauma registry team must keep detailed and reliable information.
  • Parkland submits trauma registry data to TQIP, the State of Texas, and the Regional Advisory Council on a quarterly basis. This data goes through an extensive validation process prior to submission to ensure data is accurate.
  • Registrars must complete the AAAM scoring class and the ATS Trauma Registrar Course (or equivalent). The registrars at Parkland also ensure they stay current with education by participating in the TQIP webinars and monthly quizzes. The registrars also maintain a minimum of 8 hours of continuing education every year.
  • The Parkland trauma registry team combined has over 100 years of trauma experience.
