Exploring the differences in ICD and hospital morbidity data collection features across countries: an international survey
Exploring the differences in ICD and hospital morbidity data collection features across countries: an international survey (BMC).
The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is the reference standard for reporting diseases and health conditions globally. Variations in ICD use and data collection across countries can hinder meaningful comparisons of morbidity data.
Harmonizing ICD coding standards/guidelines should be a common goal to enhance
international comparisons of health data. The current international status of
ICD data collection highlights the need for the promotion of ICD and the
adoption of the newest version, ICD-11. Furthermore, it will encourage further
research on how to improve and standardize ICD coding.
