        • abstract: This data set contains cases of Chronic Pulmonary Obstructive Disease (COPD) Diagnosis (ICD-9-CM 490-492 or 496 and ICD-10-CM J40-J44) among New Mexico residents for the years 2010-2016. The ED information comes from UB-04. These data are stratified by month of admission, county of residence, age group, sex and when available, race and ethnicity. Emphasis is placed on those residents age 25 years and older as required and optional nationally consistent data measures.
        • purpose: To provide data for the New Mexico Environmental Public Health Tracking (EPHT) Network consistent with the guidance for creating the COPD emergency department visits for Nationally Consistent Data and Measures (NCDM). Dataset was created to allow for public access to the following required and optional NCDMs: 1) Annual number of ED visits for COPD; 2) Rate of ED visits for COPD by age group (total, 25-44, 45-64, 65-84, and 85+) per 10,000 population; and 3) Age-adjusted rate of ED visits for COPD among persons 25 and over per 10,000 population (adjusted by the direct method to the 2000 Standard US population). Other analyses are enabled for the NMTracking portal and NMIBIS.
        • supplinf: The EPHT NCDMs are based on date of admission because of the goal of relating a hospitalization event with an environmental event. Data were provided by individual non-federal EDs in New Mexico. Therefore these data do not include ED visits from Veterans Affairs or Indian Health Service facilities. The DOH does not collect ED encounters among New Mexico residents that occur out-of-state. Data have been de-identified to protect patient confidentiality. Population data used to calculate rates are annual estimates produced by the University of New Mexico Geospatial and Population Studies (GPS) program and are considered the most accurate available for New Mexico. They are the official estimates and projections used in New Mexico state government.

      • accconst: Restricted (secure) data will only be released to external users after the data steward, the Health Systems Epidemiology Program of the New Mexico Department of Health (NM DOH-HSEP), has reviewed and authorized the request. Restricted (secure) data must be requested directly from NM DOH-HSEP. Any data requests or inquiries regarding underlying data elements should be directed to NM DOH-HSEP at DOH-HealthSystemsEPI@state.nm.us.
      • useconst: This information is provided by the Health Systems Epidemiology Program and Environmental Health Epidemiology Bureau of the New Mexico Department of Health Epidemiology and Response Division. Efforts have been made to assure the accuracy of the data. However, no responsibility is assumed by the New Mexico Department of Health related to materials and information and how it is represented by those who access this information. There are some important caveats to keep in mind when using these data: data are submitted by individual hospital emergency departments which have varied information systems, databases, capacities to extract data and file formats that are produced; coding within the dataset may not be uniform; currently, limited quality control or assurance efforts are in place. Data submitted have been examined for internal consistency and to determine whether they have conformed to the NMDOH request guidelines. Each facility is contacted to troubleshoot when needed. However, no chart reviews have been conducted to determine the reliability or validity of these data as reported. The NMDOH does not take responsibility for the quality of the data. All users must read and fully comprehend metadata prior to data use.

      • complete: These data include emergency department visits of individuals who are discharged from 36 New Mexico's acute care, non-federal hospitals' facilities. The dataset is comprised of records of patients who were treated and released (including those who were admitted as inpatients from the ED). There are some important caveats to keep in mind when using these data: data are submitted by individual hospital emergency departments which have varied systems, databases, capacities to extract data and file formats that are produced; coding within the dataset may not be uniform; currently, limited quality control or assurance efforts are in place.

          • procdesc: Data processed according to the Emergency Department Visits for COPD Implementation Guidance and per the instructions found in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Recommendations for Nationally Consistent Data and Measures within the How-to-Guide for Data Submission, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Emergency Department (ED) Visits, Environmental Public Health Tracking, July 25, 2016. Cases include: resident emergency department visits for COPD (classified as primary or principal diagnosis code ICD-9-CM 490XX-492XX or 496XX and ICD-10-CM J40XXX-J44XXX) in treated and released emergency department visit administrative data set (including those who were admitted as inpatients from the ED)during the year 2015. Data were reported by 36 of New Mexico's acute care, non-federal hospitals' facilities. The submitted data were extensively edited. First, each hospital's data were edited for systematic problems. Then, each record was reviewed for invalid codes, missing items, and inconsistent items (e.g., sex, race/ethnicity, and diagnosis). For example, ethnicity is set to H=Hispanic when race coding shows H and race is set to U=Unknown for reported race of H. Data were de-duplicated but transfers were not excluded. The corrections were made to the data file until all issues were resolved. The International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) Manual and 10th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM) Manual was used. ED data are collected from facilities yearly. The long-term plan is for the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) to collect these data through an ED electronic reporting (e-reporting) system currently being developed with the New Mexico Health Information Collaborative (NMHIC). However, few facilities are reporting to the ED e-reporting system at this time. Therefore, in the interim, we have been requesting that each facility submit its data directly to the NMDOH by May 31 of each year, beginning in 2017. If a facility is already working with NMHIC, they continue to do so, but also provide data to NMDOH directly. The department is authorized to request and receive these data under the Public Health Act which grants the department authority to investigate, control and abate the cause of diseases (Section 24-1-3C). Additional authority was enacted (NMAC 7.4.3.10, http://164.64.110.239/nmac/parts/title07/07.004.0003.htm ) on April 30, 2009 which specifically requires that all non-federal emergency departments in the State of New Mexico must comply with NMDOH requests for ED data. The Health Information Accountability and Portability Act (HIPAA) provides that covered entities (including hospitals and their emergency departments) may disclose protected health information, without authorization, to public health authorities who are legally authorized to receive such reports for the purpose of preventing or controlling disease, injury , or disability. This would include, for example, the reporting of a disease or injury, and conducting public health surveillance. The NMDOH is such a public health authority.
