Is There a Doctor on Board? Partnering with a Trauma Center to Advance Vision Zero Data Systems


Tuesday – June 4, 2019 (9:30am PST / 12:30 pm EST)

The loss of 40,0000 lives each year on our roadways from vehicle collisions is not just a transportation crisis; it is a public health epidemic. Medical, hospital, trauma, police and emergency response personnel are on the frontline of these tragedies. In their roles, they gather information and collect data that is critical to understanding the interrelated factors associated with traffic crashes. What information is collected? How is that data used? How can it inform city agencies working towards Vision Zero?

In this webinar, we will discuss a pioneering research collaborative – San Francisco’s Vision Zero SF Injury Prevention Research Collaborative – linking hospital, police, emergency response and other data for more accurate, coordinated and timely monitoring of transportation-related injuries and deaths. In turn, these data support safety project prioritization, evaluation and monitoring in the city of San Francisco.

Led by San Francisco Department of Public Health’s Program on Health, Equity and Sustainability and the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center, this first-of-its-kind research effort highlights why data sharing and multisector agency collaboration are at the core of Vision Zero.
