Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS)

 

FARS is a nationwide census providing the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Congress, and the American public yearly data regarding fatal injuries suffered in motor vehicle traffic crashes. Georgia uses the raw data set (individual records for the state of Georgia) to design specific queries that are used to identify geographic regions where fatal crashes occur, specific population groups that are disproportionately affected, and risk factors associated with specific crashes (i.e., alcohol-impaired driving, distracted driving, speeding, unrestrained/un-helmeted, etc.).

Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) – Georgia Electronic Accident Reporting System (GEARS) and Crash Data Dashboard

 

GEARS, developed and maintained by LexisNexis® Risk Solutions on behalf of the GDOT, serves as a portal into the state of Georgia’s repository for traffic crash reports completed by Georgia law enforcement agencies. The GDOT Crash Data Dashboard via Numetric provides crash and vehicle data from crashes that occurred on Georgia’s public roads over the las five years, as well as information regarding the various safety campaigns throughout the state of Georgia. This dashboard provides data visualizations, crash mapping, and easy-to-use filtering to access crash data at the city, county, or regional level.

Georgia Department of Public Health – Crash Outcomes Data Evaluation System (CODES)

 

Georgia CODES is designed to foster and cultivate crash-outcome data linkage for highway safety applications at the state level, supporting State Highway Safety Offices, State Public Health and Injury Prevention Departments, State Emergency Medical Services Agencies, State transportation departments, and other such agencies. CODES uses probabilistic methodology to link crash records to injury outcome records collected at the scene and en route by emergency medical services, by hospital personnel after arrival at the emergency department or admission as an inpatient and/or, at the time of death, on the death certificate. By linking data from various sources, CODES creates comprehensive datasets used to analyze crashes, vehicles, driver behaviors, health outcomes, and medical costs.

Georgia Department of Public Health – Online Analytical Statistical Information System (OASIS)

 

OASIS is a suite of interactive tools used to access the Georgia Department of Public Health’s standardized health data repository. The standardized health data repository used by OASIS is currently populated with Vital Statistics (births, deaths, fetal deaths, induced terminations, pregnancies), Hospital Discharge, Emergency Room Visit, Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS), Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Survey (BRFSS), STD, Motor Vehicle Crash, and Population data.

Georgia Department of Public Health – Georgia Emergency Medical Services Information System (GEMSIS)

 

GEMSIS, Georgia’s statewide pre-hospital care reporting system, is an electronic system that provides timely, accurate, and efficient data from the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) patient care reports. The goal of GEMSIS is to develop an effective and efficient statewide surveillance infrastructure to assist in data collection, data reporting, evaluation, and the quality improvement initiative that supports the integration of EMS into the overall healthcare system. EMS providers can enter their Patient Care Reports (PCRs) directly into a database or transmit aggregated PCR data files online into the state GEMSIS database. The GEMSIS data contains information on several transportation-related injuries, such as but not limited to, motor vehicle crashes, motorcycle crashes, bicycle crashes and pedestrians struck. As such, GEMSIS is an integral part of Georgia’s crash data and traffic records system.
