ICD-11 codes are becoming healthcare’s new reality since the new code set was released this week by the World Health Organization (WHO) and reported on by ICD10monitor.
And already important questions are emerging.
Will it be possible to have a paper ICD-11 book? Will there be more electronic tools available to assist with understanding the new classification? These and other topics are covered by the WHO’s Robert Jakob, the special guest on this edition of Talk Ten Tuesdays. Calling in live from Geneva, Dr. Jakob also reports on the major changes to the classification that will be formally presented at the World Health Assembly next May for adoption by member states, effective as soon as Jan. 1, 2022.
