The National Trauma Research Repository (NTRR) is a comprehensive web platform for managing research datasets to support data sharing among trauma investigators. It is designed to be a central, cloud-based repository for the clinical data resulting from both military funded and civilian research efforts. Access to the system is through web-based applications developed jointly with the National Institutes of Health – Center for Information Technology. Repository data covers the entire patient care trajectory: from injury prevention, point of injury, en route care, hospital care, rehabilitation and long-term outcomes. The system allows researchers to share original data sets and request shared data sets for secondary analyses.
The NTRR is managed by the National Trauma Institute (NTI), funded by the Department of Defense, and built by the National Institutes of Health's Center for Information Technology and Sapient Government Services. Its purpose is to help advance trauma research by providing the infrastructure that enables investigators to access and use clinical research data that have not previously been available.
