MV PICCS: CDC’s New Tool to Help States Reduce Motor
Vehicle Injuries & Deaths
Held Thursday, October 30, 2014
Supported by Safe States Alliance, and the CDC NCIPC
In conjunction with CDC’s October Vital Signs on Motor Vehicle Crash Injuries and Costs, CDC released a new interactive calculator, called the Motor Vehicle PICCS (Prioritizing Interventions and Cost Calculator for States). This tool will help state decision makers prioritize and select from a suite of 12 effective motor vehicle injury prevention interventions. It is designed to calculate the expected number of injuries prevented and lives saved at the state level, as well as the costs of implementation, while taking into account the state’s available resources. A fact sheet for each intervention and a final report with methodologies and cost-effectiveness analyses are included. The Motor Vehicle PICCS is available online at: http://www.cdc.gov/motorvehiclesafety/calculator.Presenters for the webinar: Erin Sauber-Schatz, CDC; and Liisa Ecola, RAND Corporation.
