National Clinical Coding Standards - ICD-10 5th Edition (2017)
- NHS Digital
- TSO (The Stationery Office)
This title gives specific instruction on the use of the ICD-10 classification for morbidity coding in areas of potential ambiguity to safeguard data consistency through national clinical coding standards.
The National Clinical Coding Standards ICD-10 are for use with the World Health Organisation (WHO) International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, Tenth Revision 5th Edition (ICD-10) when translating diagnoses and other health related problems recorded in a patient's medical record for morbidity coding.
The classification of diagnoses using ICD-10 is a mandatory national requirement for the NHS Admitted Patient Care (APC) Commissioning Data Set. Where a standard within the WHO ICD-10 Volume 2 differs to a national clinical coding standard, the national clinical coding standard must take precedence.
ICD-10 is a vital component of national data sets, such as:
Hospital Episodes Statistics (HES) in England
Hospital In-patient Statistics (HIS) in Northern Ireland
Patient Episode Data for Wales (PEDW)
Scottish Morbidity Records (SMR)
National Service Frameworks
Commissioning Data Sets (CDS)
