Injury Research and Health Organizations Urge Congress to Save Lives and Money by Including Injury Prevention in Health Care Reform
Date:9/8/2009

the U.S. each year require medical care.
  • Annually, injuries generate lifetime costs to society of $406 billion, including $80 billion in medical care.
  • Examples of proven effective prevention measures that can save lives and money are car seats and bike helmets. "These safety products have demonstrated their injury prevention and cost savings benefit time and again. Yet, only a handful of children's hospitals offer comprehensive safety resource centers that we know can ensure that parents have access to lifesaving education and effective injury prevention devices," explained Gielen. "At the other end of the age spectrum, older adults who exercise regularly, have their vision checked, undergo medication management, and who have access to a home hazard assessment can reduce their risk of experiencing a life-altering fall. Comprehensive fall-prevention services can help reduce the 11.5 million falls treated annually in the health care system and the $14 billion in lifetime medical costs generated as a result."

    Partner organizations include: American Academy of Pediatrics, American Trauma Society, Center for Injury Research and Policy of Nationwide Children's Hospital, Harborview Injury Prevention & Research Center, Home Safety Council, Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy, Medical College of Wisconsin Injury Research Center, Mount Sinai Injury Control Research Center, National Association of Children's Hospitals and Related Institutions, National Fire Protection Association, Research!America, Safe Kids USA, Society for Advancement of Violence and Injury Research, State and Territorial Injury Prevention Directors Association, University of Iowa Injury Prevention Research Center, University of North Carolina Injury Prevention Research Center, Washington University Brown Center for Violence and Injury Prevention, West Virginia University Injury Control Research Center.
