An ICD-11 Workshop

Presenters at this session will provide an overview of ICD-11 structure and content, highlighting new classification concepts and methods such as pre- and post-coordination, cluster coding, multiple parenting and linearizations. They will also provide instructions regarding the ICD-11 classification guidelines, especially for the mandatory use of additional codes and post-coordination. Where apparent, differences from current US coding guidelines will be highlighted.

Attendees will receive a document with 50 common diagnoses. They will be able to use either a computer, tablet, or a smartphone to access the WHO coding tool and/or browser, search for the diagnosis and assign the appropriate ICD-11 MMS code(s).

Presenters will engage with attendees and review all of the correct codes for the diagnoses. Participants will be asked to complete a short survey regarding the use of ICD-11 MMS and the WHO tools, focused on ease of use and including questions such as whether or not they believe a clinical modification is needed to replace current uses of ICD-10-CM in the US.

Learner Outcomes

• Classify 50 common diagnoses using the WHO ICD-11 MMS coding tool, browser and guidelines.
