A Nationwide Framework for Surveillance of Cardiovascular and Chronic Lung Diseases.


Institute of Medicine (US) Committee on a National Surveillance System for Cardiovascular and Select Chronic Diseases.


Washington (DC): National Academies Press (US); 2011.
The National Academies Collection: Reports funded by National Institutes of Health.


The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health and the Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) asked the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to form a committee that would develop a framework for building a national chronic disease surveillance system. This system would focus primarily on cardiovascular and chronic lung disease and be able to provide data for analysis of race, ethnic, socioeconomic, and geographic region disparities in incidence and prevalence, functional health outcomes, measured risk factors, and clinical care delivery.
