[Editorial] ICD-10: there’s a code for that

The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is the system for describing and coding mortality and morbidity incidents, implemented by most WHO member states. As of Oct 1, 2015, the USA formally transitioned to the updated codes, although they have already been in use in 117 other WHO member states (such as China and Canada) since release in 1992. The directive by the US Federal Government for ICD-10 compliance has been a major and controversial administrative and financial undertaking for health-care professionals, hospitals and health centres, and insurance companies.
