Use of Diagnosis Code in Mental Health Syndrome Definition

Between 2006 and 2013, the rate of emergency department (ED) visits related to mental and substance use disorders increased substantially. This increase was higher for mental disorders visits (55 percent for depression, anxiety or stress reactions and 52 percent for psychoses or bipolar disorders) than for substance use disorders (37 percent) visits. This increasing number of ED visits by patients with mental disorders indicates a growing burden on the health-care delivery system.

Representativeness of Emergency Department Data Reported to the BioSense System

In 2007, the CDC BioSense System received data from 450 non-federal hospitals. Hospitals provide data to Biosense based on their capability and willingness to supply electronic data. As of July 2008, Biosense is receiving data from 550 hospitals. The National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS) is an annual national probability sample survey of hospitals that collects data on U.S. emergency department (ED) visits.

Objective

To assess the representativeness of BioSense ED data by comparing it with the NHAMCS results.
