Health Problems

The International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related  Health Problems 10th Revision (ICD-10) is owned and published by the  World Health Organization (WHO) and is used by nearly all countries  except the United States. The United States adopted the ICD-10  classification for documenting mortality in 1999, but still uses the  earlier ICD-9 system for all other purposes. The Centers for Medicare  and Medicaid announced that they will adopt the ICD-10 classification on  October 1, 2013.

To prepare for this Application, search the Internet  for information on ICD-9 and ICD-10 classifications, such as can be  found at WHO ICD-10 Classification.
