International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems

From Academic Kids

The International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems (commonly known by the abbreviation ICD) is a detailed description of known diseases and injuries. It is published by the World Health Organization and is used world-wide for morbidity and mortality statistics.

It is revised periodically and is currently in its tenth edition, known as the ICD-10.

It was devised to standardize the collection and analysis of mortality statistics. It originally began as the Bertillon Classification (1893) and later became the ICD. Work on ICD-10 began in 1983 and was completed in 1992.

Every disease (or group of related diseases) is described with its diagnosis and given a unique code, up to five letters long.

ICD-CM (Clinical Modification)

A related publication is the ICD-CM (Clinical Modification), published by the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics. It provides for additional morbidity detail. The latest version (2001) of ICD-CM is ICD-9-CM; a draft for ICD-10-CM has been produced.

In the United States, the ICD-9-CM is still the official system of assigning codes to diagnoses and procedures associated with hospital utilization. [1] (http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/about/otheract/icd9/abticd9.htm) The ICD-10-CM codes are not currently valid for any purpose or uses and there is not yet an anticipated implementation date. There will be a two year implementation window once the final notice to implement has been published in the Federal Register. [2] (http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/about/otheract/icd9/abticd10.htm)
