    ABA and DI Announce 2019 Transition Plans

    December 4, 2018

    The American Burn Association and Digital Innovation, Inc. recently released a joint letter that outlines 2019 transition plans for DI’s Burn V6 software that is used by nearly 100 burn centers nationwide.

    As part of this transition, ABA will commence a separate invoice for NBR participation next year, and DI will initiate direct invoicing for continued use of the V6 Burn Registry software.

    2019 will hold many exciting announcements for Burn V6 users, and this transition paves the way for expanded and accelerated innovation by DI. Immediate upgrade options include the Outpatient Module and the EMR Integration Module.

    DI will be launching a Burn V6 Users Group in January to provide additional feedback into our exciting roadmap which includes an integrated PI Outcomes Module, a Burn Driller® visual analytics platform, clinical enhancements, a data submission portal for streamlined NBR submission and enhanced data validation, and much more.


    24th Annual DI Conference Wrap-Up: A Magical Time!

    November 21, 2018

    Approximately 160 DI trauma clients met in Orlando, FL to attend the 24th annual DI Users Conference. The event, which took place October 1-4, 2018, included software training sessions, guest speaker presentations, and opportunities to meet trauma professionals from around the world.

    The week’s events opened with pre-conference sessions on October 1 & 2. Again this year, DI partnered with AAAM, STN, and ATS to offer AIS 2015 & Injury Scaling, TOPIC, and the Trauma Registry Course, respectively. The Trauma Program Manager Course from ATS was a new addition to pre-conference this year, and it was a very popular choice! DI offered two courses at pre-conference: a one-day class about using V5 Outcomes with Taxonomy and a two-day DI Report Writer Core Concepts class.

    The main conference opened with guest speaker Dr. Ivan Puente from Broward Surgical Associates, Inc. His presentation, Two Shooters, One Trauma Center: How Data Collection & Analysis Helps Improve Patient Care, was moving and informative in practical application of mass casualty policies and procedures.

    Throughout the two-day main event, participants attended workshops and lab sessions that focused on using the DI Report Writer to enhance their data validation processes and create a data validation plan. By splitting the attendees into groups, both new and experienced users were able to learn in an environment suited to their current knowledge levels. Training laptops enabled attendees to practice the new skills presented.

    The agenda also included a keynote address from Mr. Wesley Boles of Ft. Walton Beach Medical Center. Trauma Innovation & Outside the Box Thinking featured a group activity and a call to think about ways to move trauma programs beyond current restraints to function more efficiently and effectively.

    In addition to all of the education at the DI Users Conference, there was also time for networking and relaxing. The 2018 Networking Night was held outside on the hotel’s pavilion and featured the music stylings of one-man band Keith Kobee. The conference wrapped up with a fun game all about data validation.

    Thanks to all who attended and made the 2018 DI Users Conference a success!

    DI announces support for ACS CD 15-5 requirements

    November 15, 2018

    Digital Innovation, Inc. is proud to announce our involvement in our nation’s Zero Preventable Deaths initiative.

    The National Academy of Sciences published a manuscript laying out a plan for a national trauma system, and part of that plan specifically calls upon the trauma registry vendors to provide our part in the overall solution.

    Please read the press release that explains the initiatives the trauma vendor community is undertaking to support the latest ACS CD 15-5 requirements for risk-adjusted benchmarking which do not require participation in ACS TQIP®.

    Supporting ACS requirements with innovative technical solutions is a fundamental mission of ours. Along with the vendor community, we are proud to do our part to stand up and commit our resources in furtherance of our nation’s goal to move progressively toward real-time performance improvement to help save lives.

    2019 ITDX Data Dictionary Release

    October 17, 2018

    Digital Innovation, Inc. is pleased to announce that the 2019 International Trauma Data Exchange (ITDX) Data Dictionary is now available. This is the first publication of the ITDX Dictionary.

    The ITDX data standard is a continuation of the proven vendor-designed XML format that has been in place in the industry since the inception of NTDS. Since then, it has extended its reach to many regional and state systems across the country.

    The Trauma Vendor Alliance (TVA) is providing the ITDX as a free standard to all vendors that want to maintain or begin using the vendor-supported format that has been used by thousands of hospitals, multiple state and regional systems, and the ACS to date.

    DI, as a founding member of the TVA, helped develop the ITDX as part of our commitment to support the rapid rate of change and evolving standards and requirements in the trauma industry.
