AAAM Announces AIS 2015 Vendor Licensing Program

The Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine (AAAM) has announced an extension of its AIS trauma registry vendor licensing program to support AIS 2015. This milestone is the first step toward the implementation of AIS 2015. Below, you can view the “short story” of what this means as well as the full press release from AAAM.

The Short Story:
  • Be Prepared – Annual Subscriptions Will Be Required: AIS 2015 now will require a permanent, annual license per AAAM for the use of the codes in a trauma registry or trauma database. Clients should discuss long-term budget planning with their respective vendor.
  • Don’t Worry – AIS 2015 Is Not Currently Required for Compliance: There are no current AIS 2015 compliance deadlines at this time, and we do not expect any State, Region, or National system to require the exclusive use of AIS 2015 without stakeholder coordination and advanced planning.
  • Be Patient – AIS 2015 Requires A Technical Implementation Time Period: AAAM is just now in the process of releasing the AIS 2015 technical information to vendors so we may begin our technical product planning. So, 2019 is planned to be a “Technical Implementation Year”. Stay tuned for specific product announcements from your vendor later in 2019.
