Impact of AIS 2005 on Trauma Program Data Management and Performance Improvement Monitoring
The AIS dictionary has been used for thirty years and continued to evolve since first 1971 publication. Goals of the extensive 2005 revision were to reflect advances in medical interventions and technology by improving specificity of certain injuries, and design compatibility with other injury scaling systems to promote global research. Any change to a database may have a direct impact on results when comparing old and new versions of data. The purpose of our study was to examine the differences on injury severity scoring (ISS) and implications of our trauma program performance monitoring.
