Acute Flaccid Myelitis Diagnosis Codes - Kansas Department of Health and Environment

This syndrome was created to query ESSENCE for KS ED visits potentially associated with Acute Flaccid Myelitis (AFM). Diagnosis codes were provided to KDHE by a CDC AFM contact and originally included approximately 100 codes that could encompass most presentations of AFM. This code reflects a shortened list selecting those codes deemed most likely to accurately reflect AFM.

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.

Exposure to Forces of Nature (Weather) Diagnosis Codes - Kansas Department of Health and Environment

This syndrome was created to capture cases where the "exposure to forces of nature" diagnosis codes are sent. This was created as a starting place for weather surveillance and should capture all weather-related events that are explicitly stated and diagnosed. Please note that if your region receives a lot of sun, the primary case counts in this syndrome definition will be sunburns. KDHE has uploaded a second similar syndrome that excludes these cases.

Exposure to Forces of Nature (Weather) Diagnosis Codes - Excluding Heat/Sunlight Exposure - Kansas Department of Health and Environment

This syndrome was created to capture records where the "exposure to forces of nature" diagnosis codes are sent, excluding Heat/Sunlight codes. The original syndrome captured all weather-related events that are explicitly stated and diagnosed, but the majority of these cases were sunburns and heat stroke. The original syndrome is also uploaded, but this syndrome will serve similar purposes as the original while excluding Heat/Sunlight cases when these are not of interest.

Carbon Monoxide Exposure - Kansas Department of Health and Environment

This syndrome was created to capture Kansas ED Visits with chief complaints related to carbon monoxide poisoning/exposure or similar diagnosis codes. The terms "heater" and "generator" are included to potentially capture cases of improper heater and generator use that did not receive relevant CO poisoning terms or codes.

Agriculture-Related Injuries - Kansas Department of Health and Environment

This syndrome was created to explore the possibility of Kansas Syndromic Surveillance Program data for agriculture-related injuries. This topic could potentially cover trauma, injury, occupational public health, and child health. This syndrome is still a work-in-progress and a proof of concept, but has given some promising results so far in Kansas. One point to note is farmers are not particularly descriptive in triage and tend to not complaint excessively so we had to turn to Diagnosis Codes to get the most reliable results.

Chronic Pain Syndrome - Kansas Board of Pharmacy

This is a preliminary Chronic Pain-Related Syndrome, created to search relevant ICD10 and a few key terms in emergency department visits in ESSENCE. The codes and terms are specific to non-cancer related chronic pain with exclusions of cases receiving cancer-related ICD10.

ICD10 codes were selected by translating the following ICD9 codes for Chronic Pain contained in this PDF (https://www.cdc.gov/drugoverdose/pdf/pdo_guide_to_icd-9-cm_and_icd-10_co...)
