In 1988 the Board of Trustees of the American Burn Association (ABA) charged its Committee on Organization and Delivery of Burn Care (CODBC) to develop a model registry for patients with burns and to create the computer software necessary to allow individual members of the ABA to collect patient data within their own institutions. This project has now been completed. Part one of this article reviews the background and rationale for conducting the project and describes the steps taken in establishing a registry project.
