AIS is an anatomical-based coding system created by the Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine. It is used worldwide to improve trauma care by classifying and describing the severity of specific injuries. Medical professionals collect the data and send it to a national trauma database for use in research studies to improve trauma care.
Brammer was certified in 2012 as an AIS specialist to improve data quality in St. Anthony’s trauma registry. Trauma Registrar Tiffany Placke, R.N., and Trauma Data Analyst Michelle Sweeney also have attended the AIS course.
