CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) is accepting abstracts for manuscripts to be published in a supplement to the journal ‘Injury Prevention’ featuring articles describing the use of ICD-10-CM coded hospital and emergency department billing/discharge data for injury epidemiology and surveillance. Manuscripts are being solicited from both non-CDC and CDC authors. The issue will include ICD-10-CM surveillance case definitions for specific injury topics (e.g., hospitalizations and ED visits for drug overdose, TBI, suicide), ICD-10-CM evaluation studies from the field, and exploratory studies.


Examples of potential topics include:

  • Case confirmation studies with medical record review to estimate the sensitivity, specificity, or predictive value of ICD-10-CM injury diagnosis and/or external cause of injury codes.
  • Trend analyses to characterize injury trends across the ICD-10-CM transition for various indicator definitions
  • Studies that compare several proposed methods for operationalizing an injury indicator
