Opioid Diagnosis Codes - Adapted from the HCUP Definition - Kansas Department of Health and Environment

This syndrome was created as a way to integrate the H-CUP Opioid-Related Hospital Use definition into ESSENCE. H-CUP is the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project and we believe their Opioid-Related Hospital Use definition is a great starting point for developing opiate-use syndrome definitions.

CDC Opioid v1

States currently funded by CDC’s Enhanced State Opioid Overdose Surveillance (ESOOS) program have been asked to monitor opioid overdose trends in their states. In collaboration with our ESOOS partners, CDC staff developed some lessons learned in querying opioid overdose ED visits in syndromic surveillance systems. Based on this preliminary work, CDC developed an opioid overdose syndrome definition that captured all of the lessons learned from ESOOS states.
