This study presents the integrated road traffic accident system (IRTAS) in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. This study utilizes the available traffic accident data from emergency service providers to obtain the efficiency of their cooperations. The current emergency response system (ERS) in Malaysia is provided by the following entities: (1) police; (2) hospital; (3) fire and rescue; and (4) civil defense. This research uses the collaboration data from the all providers. ERS operations are conducted in accordance with the provider-specific standard operational procedure (SOP). The differences in SOP can result in poor coordination between providers when providing the emergency services to the victim. Considering that every provider has its merits and weaknesses, therefore, their merits are combined to design the most effective and most efficient IRTAS. The next step is the development of a computerized traffic accident database as a comprehensive database for the providers. Ambulance records and a one-year police data were extracted and transferred into the developed computerized database. Meanwhile available data were classified hierarchically based on their shared characteristics. Integration IRTAS was established by identifying the mapping data to the target data. The available data are used by providers for input and retrieval purposes. The data combination is used to enhance the cooperation between emergency service providers. The result modules can assist the providers to improve their emergency services and to optimize their response time to reduce the fatalities of road accidents.
