ICD-11

The World Health Organization (WHO) is currently developing the 11th revision of ICD. A final version of ICD-11 will be published in 2018 for testing and implementation according to countries' specific timelines and requirements. Following field testing, planned to take place 01-Jun-2018 - 31 Mar-2019*, NHS Digital will consider the readiness of the health and care system for an ICD-11 migration and consider potential dates for this migration.

As a WHO Collaborating Centre, NHS Digital is supporting the testing of this classification.

*Please note that these dates are indicative of current thinking only and will change as we develop our five-year strategic roadmap.

An initial phase of pre-testing took place during August and September 2016. This allowed us to:

  • create a baseline 'Gold Standard' for ICD-11
  • examine the testing process and instruments
  • build up ICD-11 knowledge and coding skills
  • test selected components of the classification for:
    • consistency
    • accuracy
    • feasibility
    • comparability with ICD-10

The results of these tests and those undertaken by other collaborating centres around the world were discussed at the WHO FIC Annual Network Meeting in Tokyo in October 2016.

Earlier this year ICD users, including coders, coding managers, auditors, trainers and system suppliers were invited to take part in the ICD-11 quality assurance process (Field Trials).  The Field Trials commenced in April and are due to complete at the end of June 2017 following which a period of analysis will take place and outputs will be made available.

If you would like to register your interest in any future field trails then please contact us via information.standards@nhs.net
