International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM) is the official system of assigning codes to diagnoses and procedures associated with hospital utilisation in the United States. It is based on the World Health Organization's Ninth Revision, International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9).
ICD-9-CM consists of:
The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services are the US government agencies responsible for overseeing all changes and modifications to the ICD-9-CM.
International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Australian Modification (ICD-10-AM) includes Australian extensions of the World Health Organization codes in ICD-10 and some specific Australian disease codes. Also included is a classification of procedures based on the Commonwealth Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) of fees for health services.
ICD-10-AM uses an alphanumeric coding scheme for diseases and external causes of injury. It is structured by body system and aetiology, and comprises three, four and five character categories.
It is the standard classification scheme now used for reporting diagnoses in all Hospital statistical collections, including the National Minimum Data Set and the Hospital Casemix Protocol.
ICD-10-AM consists of:
The alphabetic index comprises three sections:
The National Centre for Classification in Health (NCCH) as the lead organisation of the Australian Consortium for Classification Development (ACCD) is the Australian body responsible for preparing, updating and publishing new editions of ICD-10-AM.
International Classification of Primary Care, Version 2 (ICPC-2) PLUS is a coding system that allows health professionals to record symptoms, diagnoses (problem labels), past health problems and processes (such as procedures, counselling and referrals) at the point of care. It can be used in age-sex disease registers, morbidity registers and full electronic health records in primary care.
ICPC-2 PLUS is primarily used in Australia. General Practitioners from a mix of both rural and urban practices use it in their electronic health records. ICPC-2 PLUS is also currently implemented across a number of primary health care settings including software packages used by Aboriginal medical services, prisoner health, community health and allied health.
A mapping system has been developed, which enables the terms used in ICPC-2 PLUS to be matched to ICD-10-AM codes.
The ICPC-2 PLUS terminology is maintained and regularly updated by the Family Medicine Research Centre (FMRC), at the University of Sydney.
Australian Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (AR-DRGs) is an Australian admitted patient classification system that provides a clinically meaningful way of relating the number and type of patients treated in a hospital to the resources required by the hospital.
The Major Diagnostic Category (MDC) represents the category that the patient's diagnosis and the associated AR-DRG fall into. The MDC is generally based on a single body system or aetiology that is associated with a particular medical specialty.
