Under existing law, a statewide trauma system was established related to the coordination of pre-hospital and hospital trauma and emergency medical services. There is a Statewide Trauma Advisory Council and regional councils operating to advise the Department of Public Health in the administration of the statewide trauma system
Included in the trauma system is the Trauma Registry which requires reporting on trauma cases to the Alabama Department of Public Health by pre-hospital and hospital providers
This bill would authorize the addition of other health care illnesses which require the coordination of pre-hospital and hospital care. The Alabama Department of Public Health would continue to administer and regulate the programs. Other registries for reporting on illnesses by pre-hospital and hospital providers could be developed
To amend Sections 22-11D-1, 22-11D-2, 22-11D-3, 22-11D-4, 22-11D-5, 22-11D-6, 22-11D-7, 22-11D-8, and 22-11D-9 of the Code of Alabama 1975, and to add Section 22-11D-10 to Chapter 11D of Title 22 of the Code of Alabama 1975, to expand the registry and system of care in the statewide trauma system to include other health care illnesses.
