National Trauma Data Standard (NTDS)

The NTDS 2017 Admissions Data Dictionary provides over 50 definitions that can be implemented by a trauma registry system.

National data elements are defined that must be collected for the National Trauma Database and TQIP, but additional data elements should be considered for use at the state and hospital levels depending on each state or local hospital’s needs.
