Health Systems

Alabama Trauma Registry (ATR)

The Alabama Trauma Registry (ATR) is a system that supports the collection, storage, and subsequent analysis of trauma-related data on a statewide level.

Alabama Trauma System (ATHS)

Alabama has developed a statewide health and trauma system which is helping to help save lives and reduce the burden of trauma. The system improves the chances of survival, regardless of proximity to an urban trauma center. The system is voluntary and all hospitals are invited to participate. Participating hospitals are designated as levels one, two, or three, depending on their resources and services availability. Hospitals are inspected to verify that they can provide the level of care for which they have applied.

Alabama is the only state in the United States with the capability to constantly monitor the status of every trauma hospital and route the trauma patient to the right hospital every time. This system is the model for the rest of the nation.

Southeast Regional Pilot Acute Stroke System (SRPASS)

Alabama is currently administering a pilot stroke system in the Southeast Region which will help save lives and reduce the burden of stroke. This system will improve a stroke patient’s chances of survival, regardless of proximity to an urban stroke center. The stroke system is voluntary and all hospitals in the Southeast Region are encouraged to participate.
