    ""The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) and National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) are collaborating to provide national leadership to improve external-cause-of-injury-coded (E-coded) data collected in state administrative data systems. These data are used at the national, state, and local levels to identify high-risk populations, set priorities, and plan and evaluate injury prevention programs and policies, and are potentially useful for evaluating emergency medical services (EMS) and trauma care systems. The initial steps in this effort have been to develop strategies and action plans based on recommendations from public and private partners in the field of injury prevention and control. In the summer of 2007, CDC assembled an expert workgroup to prepare a Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) Recommendations and Reports that identified strategies for improving E-coding in state morbidity data systems. This MMWR report, published in March 2008 (http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/rr5701a1.htm), summarized: (1) the status of E-coding in state data systems; (2) the need to improve E-coding in state data systems; (3) the uses of these data for prevention efforts; and (4) key strategies recommended as next steps. In August 2008, CDC brought together 30 representatives from 21 federal agencies that rely on E-coded data for program planning and evaluation. These federal partners expressed their support and willingness to work together to improve E-coding in state morbidity data systems as well as in their federal agency's data systems. On February 22-23, 2009, CDC held the E-coding Improvement Partners Meeting in Maryland, with a broader range of stakeholders to seek recommendations for action plans to address the strategies published in the MMWR report. Meeting participants included representatives from federal and state agencies, medical and public health professional organizations, non-profit injury prevention and health/safety promotion organizations, and health insurance plan organizations. This report summarizes potential collaborative action steps for CDC and its partners to improve E-coding in state morbidity data systems, with implications for improving federal morbidity data systems, based on recommendations by participants of that February 2009 meeting. A list of participants and their organizations represented at the meeting is provided in Appendix A. A list of acronyms used in this report is given in Appendix B. - p. 7
