[Editorial] ICD-11: a brave attempt at classifying a new world

The 11th version of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) launched on June 18 is the latest attempt at systematically describing and categorising all human mortality and morbidity. Designed for the global digital age, it is an onscreen, multipurpose, multilingual database interconnecting with other operating systems—including electronic hospital records. It is a quantum leap forward from the ICD-10, which, although revised several times over the past two decades, was originally published in 1992, when internet use was minimal, smartphones were unheard of, and patient records were paper based.
