Are You Ready for ICD-11?

Did you know that the World Health Organization (WHO) version of ICD-10 is now 30 years old? It was approved for use by the World Health Assembly in 1989. As you can imagine, there have been many advancements in medicine and the science of disease over the past 30 years, and ICD-10 is now outdated from both a clinical and classification perspective.

Disease Groupings: What are They, How are They Used, and How Do They Compare Internationally?

The purpose of this article is to review diagnosis-related group (DRG) systems by introducing the concept of disease groupings, describing the country-specific DRGs based on the International Classification of Diseases (ICD), and comparing country-specific disease classification systems and coding processes related to disease grouping. We discuss our findings with regard to the implications for disease groupings that may result from the upcoming adoption of ICD-11.
