    "During the National Expert Panel on Field Triage meetings, members discussed the potential for vehicle telematics to more accurately guide trauma triage decisions. Telematics is defined as the combination of telecommunications and computing. Vehicle telematics systems combine and integrate directly into the vehicle's electrical architecture, cellular communications technology, Global Positioning System (GPS) satellite location capability, and sophisticated voice recognition. While vehicle telematics provide a wide array of services, Advanced Automatic Collision Notification (AACN) was the telematics service that was of particular interest to the National Expert Panel members. AACN is the successor to Automatic Crash Notification (ACN) and is found on a number of motor vehicles. (AACN is now installed in approximately 5 million vehicles in the United States and Canada.) AACN alerts emergency services that a vehicle crash has occurred and automatically summons assistance.In follow up to the need to explore further how AACN could improve triage, CDC selected and convened an expert panel. The purpose of the panel was to develop a medical protocol for utilization of AACN data from crashes to better predict severity of injury and use this information to improve the ability to respond to crashes and appropriately triage crash victims. ." - p. 2-3
