Injury Prevention

Injury Prevention. To assist in preventing injuries, it’s necessary to know the current types of injuries being treated and where these injuries are occurring. Utilizing PCC data exported to the National Data Warehouse (NDW) and working with the Division of Environmental Health Services (DEHS), the IHPES program developed a data mart that tracks injuries based upon ICD9 "External Cause of Injury" codes. In addition, the data mart tracks other major health issues such as Asthma, Vectorborne illness, notifiable diseases and intestinal diseases.
