Norfolk Southern Railway Company-Abandonment Exemption-in Calhoun County, AL, 5734-5735 [06-1014]

Download as PDF 5734 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 22 / Thursday, February 2, 2006 / Notices registry data, and long term health care data should be consistent with statewide formats which should follow national standards such as ICD–9–CM, as published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the use of Injury Severity Scale standards, etc. Completeness—Although a traumaregistry-based ISS can provide a valuable source of ISS information, it cannot provide a complete picture of the injuries within a community or State. Where possible, the ISS should represent a consensus of all injuries that occur within the community. The ISS should, where feasible, be maintained at a State level but, at a minimum, should be maintained at the local level. Accuracy—The State should provide local heath care providers with training and support in the accurate coding of injuries and should foster the proper use of the resulting ISS data through education of data users in proper interpretation of these data. Accessibility—Recognizing the issues of patient and institutional confidentiality, there should be mechanisms in place to balance the demands for data accessibility from end users and the requirements of State and local privacy rules. At a minimum, the traffic safety and injury control communities should be able to access these data in summarized reports designed to address specific needs, including injury type and severity cost data. Ideally, the system should support the creation of ‘‘sanitized’’ extracts of the ISS data for use in research, problem identification, and program evaluation efforts. Data Integration—The true power of the ISS is recognized when the ISS data are integrated with other traffic records system data such as traffic crash, roadway, and crime data, as well as internally between EMS runs, hospital/ED admission data and discharge data. The ISS should be implemented in a fashion that supports this integration in as efficient a manner as possible. Often GIS systems provide the ideal platform for linkage and interpretation of the ISS and traditional traffic records system data. The use of common identifiers whenever possible within the traditional traffic records system and ISS data systems will facilitate this integration effort. Issued on: January 30, 2006.
