 On Your Behalf

In mid-November, AMCHP staff members Cheryl Clark, Michelle Eglovitch and Krista Granger facilitated the National Learning Network for Perinatal and Infant Oral Health In-Person Learning Session in Baltimore. This two-day meeting was coordinated by the Children’s Dental Health Project in partnership with AMCHP, the National Improvement Partnership Network and the Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors, and involved 16 state grantees within the Perinatal and Infant Oral Health Quality Improvement project.

 In mid-November, Cheryl Clark attended the kickoff meeting of the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) ICD-10-CM Transition Workgroup in Atlanta. The workgroup was convened to assess the quality of morbidity data coding following transition from the Clinical Modification of the 9th revision of ICD (ICD–9–CM) to ICD–10–CM. This transition in coding classifications has significant implications for injury surveillance (intentional and unintentional) and injury data resources. CSTE, the National Center for Health Statistics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Safe States Alliance are providing leadership and support to this multijurisdictional workgroup.
