Development of ICD 10 codes

In the mid 1990's the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) found that a clinical modification of ICD 10 Codes would be a significant improvement which should be implemented in the United States. As medical knowledge has increased including emerging diseases, new concepts and the need to expand distinctions for managed care and ambulatory care, a clinical modification was needed. The clinical modification for ICD 10 Codes was created in three phases. The first phase developed with the assistance of a technical advisory panel (TAP) being a prototype. The next two phases incorporated enhancements to the prototype based on the ICD 9 Codes Coordination and Maintenance Committee and public input. The development of the ICD 10 Codes included group discussions with physicians, professional associations (e.g., American Hospital Association, or AHA) and professional licensed coders currently using ICD 9 Codes. As potential problems are identified during the field testing, future improvements are expected. Although ICD 10 Codes are in the public domain, neither the codes nor the code titles can be changed unless approved by the Coordination and Maintenance process overseen together by the Centers for Medicare and Medical Services (CMS) and the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). ICD 10 Codes consist of twenty-one chapters. The classification of factors influencing health status and contact with health services (V codes), and the classification of external causes of injury and poisoning (E codes), are incorporated within ICD 10 Codes instead of being considered supplementary classifications, as in ICD 9 Codes.

ICD 11 Codes

The first (alpha) draft of the ICD 11 Codes system (authored by WHO) is expected on May 10, 2010, with a beta draft due May 10, 2011. The final draft will be submitted to World Health Assembly (WHA) by 2014. Pilot implementation is scheduled to begin in March 2014. The ICD 11 Code revision process is open to all comers willing to register, back their suggestions with evidence from medical literature and participate in online debate over proposed changes through an ICD 11 Code Update and Revision Platform extranet. WHO is using Web 2.0 principles for the first time to revise ICD 11 Code via a multi-author drafting platform known as the Initial ICD 11 Codes Collaborative Authoring Tool (iCAT). The iCAT production server had been viewable by all, but in November 2010 editing rights were restricted to WHO, Revision Steering Group, Topic Advisory Groups and external peer reviewers of proposals and content until the beta draft stage is reached. More detailed information on the revision process, access to the revision platform and iCAT is available at the WHO website.
