Data Integration

Abstract: Join your data intergration colleagues in learning about Vermont's successful interstate driver and vehicle data integration program and the CDC's Motor Vehicle Prioritizing Interventions and Cost Calculator for States (MVPICCS) tool. After implementing web-based crash reporting  in 2008, Vermont has been working to make the system and crash data collection quicker and easier for law enforcement.  By linking to the Department of Motor Vehicles, law enforcement is now able to auto-fill for a majority of the driver, owner and vehicle fields in the crash form.  The Vermont Web Crash system sends requests and receives responses from Vermont, Massachusetts and New York currently.  These queries and responses are all processed through the National Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (Nlets) message switch in Arizona.  The Vermont law enforcement message switch (VLETS) is where these queries pass through for Vermont which is located at the VT Department of Public Safety.  The CDC's MVPICCS   now includes 2015 state data and a graphical interface, can help state decision makers prioritize and select from a suite of 14 effective motor vehicle injury prevention interventions. MV PICCS 3.0 calculates the expected number and monetized value of injuries prevented, lives saved, and the costs of implementation, while taking into account available resources. The updated tool includes easy access to intervention fact sheets and a completely new user-friendly interface.
