The Trauma Registry Data are based on hospital reporting. Hospitals are required to report major trauma (Injury Severity Score (ISS) of 9 or above or a Revised Trauma Score (RTS) less than 11) and all traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and spinal cord injuries (SCI). The data include fatal and non-fatal injuries. (However, data do not include death certificate information. To obtain a broader perspective on injury mortality, please see the death data module of Texas Health Data). Visit the Texas Trauma Registry webpage for more information about the program.
