ICD stands for the International Classification of Diseases. These codes are endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and are utilized by Health Information Management departments across the U.S. (and the world) to codify the diagnoses and medical procedures for all patients. ICD-10 indicates the 10th revision. These codes are used in a number of different ways including calculating inpatient payment like Medicare Severity-Diagnosis Related Groups (MS-DRGs), adjudicating coverage for all outpatient, professional and inpatient care, compiling statistics, and assessing quality.
