ABA National Burn Repository

The National Burn Repository summarizes and compares cases submitted by burn centers internationally and in the United States. The concept behind the NBR is simple: burn centers send to a central repository a standard set of data elements regarding their burn cases. The central repository summarizes the data quality, demographic and injury information, and outcomes to prepare various reports, some of which can show how your experience compares with that of your peer centers.

Both the NBR and Burn Registry Committees of the ABA are committed to improving the quality of completeness, and usefulness of the data collected by burn facilities and submitted to the NBR. Questions, comments, and suggestions can be sent to Maureen Kiley, ABA Director, at kiley@ameriburn.org or 312-642-9260.

The mission of the ABA National Burn Repository (NBR) is to develop, review and assess the quality and content of data input to the NBR by contributing burn facilities and to manage data output by providing annual public reports, hospital specific benchmark reports and data releases to qualified researchers.
