INTERNATIONAL CLASSIFICATION OF DISEASES

A medical code set maintained by the World Health Organization (WHO). The primary purpose of this code set was to classify causes of death. A US extension, maintained by the NCHS within the CDC, identifies morbidity factors, or diagnoses. The ICD-9-CM codes have been selected for use in the HIPAA transactions.
