Variations in the way that data are entered in emergency department record systems impede the use of ED records for direct patient care and deter their reuse for many other legitimate purposes.
To foster more uniform ED data, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control is coordinating a public-private partnership that has developed recommended specifications for many observations, actions, instructions, conclusions, and identifiers that are entered in ED records.
The partnership's initial product, Data Elements for Emergency Department Systems, Release 1.0 (DEEDS), is intended for use by individuals and organizations responsible for ED record systems.
If the recommended specifications are widely adopted, then problems-such as data incompatibility and high costs of collecting, linking, and using data-can be substantially reduced.
The collaborative effort that led to DEEDS, Release 1.0 sets a precedent for future review and revision of the initial recommendations.
