Automatic Crash Notification: Assessing Montana's Motor Vehicle Crash and Related Injury Data Infrastructure

The long-term goals of this research were to reduce the time to deliver emergency care to motor vehicle crash victims; to make improved (better informed) triage, transport and treatment decisions where choices exist; and to improve long-term rehabilitation outcomes for motor vehicle crash survivors. The researchers reviewed and documented Montana’s current data infrastructure and developed recommendations for incorporating new information technologies to enhance the trauma response system. These recommendations were used to construct the procedures for introducing AACN data and used in a simulated live demonstration of the procedures.
