Trends in ICD-10-CM-Coded Administrative Datasets for Injury Surveillance and Research (SMA).
Accurate injury surveillance depends on data quality in administrative datasets created for billing and reimbursement. Significant effort has been devoted to testing the ability of candidate injury case definitions to identify injury cases accurately in these datasets.
Conclusions: Injury surveillance relies on billing and reimbursement records.
Financial motivations may interfere with the consistency of surveillance
findings and mislead injury epidemiologists.
