ICD 10 Code of Disease for Android

Developer's Description

A classification of diseases can be defined as a system of categories to which

morbid entities are assigned accordin

g to established criteria. The purpose

of the ICD is to permit systematic recording, analysis, interpretation and

comparison of mortality and morbidity data collected in different countries or

areas and at different times. The ICD is used to translate diagnoses of diseases

and other health problems from words into an alphanumeric code, which

permits easy storage, retrieval and analysis of the data.

In practice, the ICD has become the

international standard diagnostic

classification for all general epidemiological and many health-management

purposes. These include analysis of the general health situation of population

groups and monitoring of the incidence and prevalence of diseases and other

health problems in relation to other variables, such as the characteristics

and circumstances of the individuals affected. The ICD is neither intended

nor suitable for indexing of distinct clinical entities. There are also some

constraints on the use of the ICD for studies of financial aspects, such as

billing or resource allocation.

The ICD can be used to classify diseases and other health problems recorded

on many types of health and vital records. Its original use was to classify

causes of mortality as recorded at the registration of death. Later, its scope

was extended to include diagnoses in morbidity. It is important to note that,

although the ICD is primarily designed for the classification of diseases and

injuries with a formal diagnosis, not every problem or reason for coming into

contact with health services can be categorized in this way. Consequently,

the ICD provides for a wide variety of signs, symptoms, abnormal findings,

complaints and social circumstances that may stand in place of a diagnosis

on health-related records (see Volume 1, Chapters XVIII and XXI). It can

therefore be used to classify data recorded under headings such as diagnosis,

reason for admission, conditions treated and reason for consultation, which

appear on a wide variety of health records from which statistics and other

health-situation information are derived.
