In May of 2006, a letter supporting the creation and facilitation of the National Trauma Data Standard (formerly known as the National Trauma Registry) was provided by the National Association of State EMS Officials. The letter states:
"The National Association of State EMS Officials (NASEMSO) acknowledges the need for and supports the concept of collection of trauma registry data at the national level. Additionally, NASEMSO understands the need for and therefore supports the concept of standardization of the data to be collected at the national level. The collection of standardized trauma registry data at the national level will aid researchers; will improve the care provided to people suffering from injuries; and will provide for evidence-based decision making by policy makers across the US when considering matters of injury prevention and trauma system development."
