Data Sets Managed by the Wisconsin Injury Prevention Program

Wisconsin Interactive Statistics on Health (WISH) is a web-based data system that includes data on injury-related hospitalizations, emergency department visits and deaths. The system can be queried by demographics (age, sex, race, ethnicity), geographic area (statewide, county, State Health Regions, Regional Trauma Advisory Councils), and by specific injury causes and manner of injury.

The Wisconsin Violent Death Reporting System (WVDRS) is based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS). Wisconsin is one of 17 states funded by CDC to begin NVDRS. WVDRS is a statewide surveillance system that collects detailed information on all homicides, suicides, deaths of undetermined intent, deaths resulting from legal intervention, and deaths related to unintentional firearm injuries.

CASEPOINT, the Medical Examiner/Coroner Electronic Reporting System Software, provides real-time, standardized, web-based electronic data entry and access on site. CASEPOINT has the ability to release real-time injury related data to agencies throughout the state. A plan to integrate CASEPOINT and WVDRS is being developed.
