You mean you don’t keep flying the approach and ask ATC what to do ?

Is there any automated way for the ATC controller to be made aware of an ongoing TCAS RA? Or do they depend on a radio call by the pilots flying the RA procedure?
TCAS is an autonomous system, and it works from its own interrogation of other aircraft. There is no data link to controllers' scopes or systems.
