NTDS Data Dictionary 2024 Admissions

The National Trauma Data Standard (NTDS) Data Dictionary is designed to establish a national standard for the exchange of trauma registry data, and to serve as the operational definitions for the American College of Surgeons (ACS) National Trauma Data Bank (NTDB) and the Trauma Quality Improvement Program (TQIP). It is expected—-and encouraged—-that local and state trauma registry committees will move towards extending and/or modifying their registries to adopt NTDS-based definitions. The data, which are submitted according to this standard, are used for all NTDB and TQIP reports, and the NTDS Data Dictionary is an essential abstraction tool for all ACS-verified trauma centers, as well as for NTDB and TQIP participants. This version of the NTDS Data Dictionary is applicable to patients with a 2024 admission year.
