A Request for Information From the International Classification of Disease: Upcoming ICD-11 

The International Classification of Diseases (ICD) is the global standard for health data, clinical documentation, and statistical aggregation. It provides a common language for recording, reporting, and monitoring diseases. It facilitates the collection and storage of data for analysis and comparison of mortality and morbidity data. ICD-11 is the 11th revision, a result of an unprecedented collaboration with clinicians, statisticians, classification, and IT experts from around the world. For the first time, ICD will be fully electronic, include more diagnostic codes, and can be used online or offline – a vast improvement on previous revisions.  For this Request for Information (RFI), the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics (NCVHS), needs feedback from a wide variety of users – including those with expertise in how rural health may be impacted.  To submit comments in response to the RFI, please send by close of business January 12, 2024, to NCVHSmail@cdc.gov, and include on the subject line: Response from [your organization or name] regarding ICD–11 RFI. Comments are due by January 12, 2023.
