Road traffic crashes are recorded for various reasons such as establishing the damage, to estimate the economic cost of road crashes and to use this information to adequately plan and provide safer road transport infrastructure. In Kenya, the Traffic Police Department record crash information since they are always the first to attend to accident scenes. The data recorded by Traffic Police may often be counterchecked through the Ministry of Health (M.o.H) at the hospital level for post-crash and trauma care as well as organizations offering paramedicine services. Varying scales of injury may only be determined at the hospital during road crash injury management and prevention hence the need to establish an integrated data management system.
