    DI announces Trauma Cloud™ industry launch and informational webinar

    March 30, 2017

    In our continued effort to better serve you, our valued customers, we are announcing the release of the Trauma Cloud. The trauma industry that we all operate in is rapidly changing, and registries have increasing demands to interconnect and share data with a variety of systems, products, and repositories.

    The Trauma Cloud™ is a new joint initiative among the leading trauma registry vendors to bring a “cloud-based” technology to better connect systems and save costs. At its very basic essence it is a cloud service that enables the best interoperability within our industry. It will enable connections in the most efficient manner between system registries, national repositories (such as ACS TQIP®), PI collaboratives, analytic reporting, and linkage to EMS and EMR systems. We will also use the Trauma Cloud™ to manage AIS registration and updates along with ICD updates. Agency and hospital lists will be dispersed through the Trauma Cloud™. We envision providing real-time validation through the Trauma Cloud™. 

    Registration to the Trauma Cloud™ is mandatory for you to continue to receive software and validator updates for system processes. However, registration it is free and easy. Join one of our upcoming vendor-sponsored webinars that will explain the Trauma Cloud™ in more detail, including the registration process. Click here to register for an upcoming webinar.

    We are excited to be part of launching this significant innovation for our clients and industry to further support your performance improvement initiatives.

    TVA Releases Implementation Timeframe Best Practices Document

    August 10, 2016

    DI is a founding member of the Trauma Vendor Alliance (TVA) and an active participant in its work groups. The first work group established was to develop a best practices guideline document for addressing registry data set implementations in the most efficient manner possible.

    The work group was comprised of members from all the major trauma vendors, as well as leadership from a number of state, national, hospital system, and collaborative trauma registry systems. We encourage you to share this email, document, and TVA announcement link broadly to your colleagues and networks. The more people that are exposed to these best practices, the smoother trauma registry implementations can go for all.

    You can find the newly released document on the TVA Announcement Board.

    Please let us know any feedback that you have on this document, as it is the intent of the TVA to periodically revise this resource to benefit all members of the trauma registry community.

    Learn more about the TVA by watching this short video.

    March 23, 2016 DI announces its support of the new Trauma Vendor Alliance

    March 23, 2016

    TVA_Logo

    Dear DI Clients & Partners,

    Digital Innovation is excited to announce our membership and support of a new trauma industry initiative known as the Trauma Vendor Alliance (TVA). The TVA has been established by the nation’s three leading hospital trauma registry vendors to help ensure support of industry needs crossing vendor platforms that will ultimately benefit the entire trauma community. DI, along with the other members of the TVA, will be donating time, expertise, and technical contributions as a community service to help better serve our customers with our shared mission of allowing trauma registry systems to better receive and share information with a greater variety of systems and products. This will ultimately help improve patient outcomes and save lives.

    Please take a few minutes to view the TVA introduction video available via on-demand webcast.

    DI has joined the TVA because the alliance will make it easier to connect DI products like Collector, V5, NTRACS, Outcomes, Tri-Code, and DI Driller to Electronic Medical Records (EMR’s), Health Information Exchanges (HIE’s), EMS Patient Care Reports (PCR’s) for EMS Trauma Linkage, and more. The TVA will also make it less expensive for Hospital, State, Regional, and Hospital System registries to maintain compliance with national standards and guidelines while, at the same time, providing trauma leaders additional resources. The TVA will create free technical resources that everyone can use! Since the alliance of trauma registry vendors will directly benefit DI’s many users, as well as benefit the trauma registry community as a whole, DI’s support of the TVA was an easy decision to make!

    Today, the most important step for you to take is to sign up for TVA’s Announcement Board. Joining is free and the announcement board will keep you informed with important information that will be provided throughout the year.

    If you have any questions, please contact Tim Favazza at 410-838-4034 ext 234 or sales@dicorp.com.

    Thank you for your time and we look forward to working on this exciting new initiative with your support. Together, we can all be part of better connecting trauma registry data to save time and help improve outcomes!

    Sincerely,
    John
