The best place to start the transition to the new data dictionary is right here on this website. Please review all pertinent information about the background of the NTDS, the data dictionary, and the timeline.
When you're ready to begin implementing the new data dictionary in your own registry, please contact your trauma registry software provider. Most software vendors have been working with NTDB and can offer you a solution that will allow you to provide data to NTDB, as well as to maintain the information you need for your hospital and state. Please contact us with any questions.
