Michigan Trauma Registry
Participation in the statewide trauma registry is an essential component of a regionalized, accountable, and coordinated trauma system. Designation as a trauma facility in Michigan requires that hospitals participate in the MI trauma registry. ImageTrend®, Inc. provides the data collection software which hosts the Registry.
