Key Takeaways

  • The National CDSME Database is housed at and managed by the National Council on Aging’s Center for Healthy Aging.

  • The database can receive data from any organization that wants to track data for their evidence-based health promotion programs. 

Aside from directly entering data into the database, one workshop and participant at a time, you can also send us your data in larger volumes for mass importing. This can be data from a third-party vendor or your organization’s own data source. Review this document for an overview of the process, considerations for working with and choosing a vendor, as well as tips for preparing the data for importing.

Tips for importing data:

  • Allow up to 6 weeks for data imports to be completed.  
  • Additional time may be needed prior to semi-annual report deadlines due to high volume.
  • Send the completed data migration template through MOVEIT and e-mail your Technical Assistance Liaison and Ben Kean ( that the data has been sent.
  • Please wait to import data until the file includes information for at least 100 participants. 
  • Contact Kathleen Zuke ( with any questions.
