A new coding tool for computerised clinical systems in primary care--ICPC plus

A new coding tool for computerised clinical systems in primary care--ICPC plus

Australian Family Physician 26(Suppl. 2): S79-S82

Standardised classifications are essential for reliable information management. The International Classification of Primary Care (ICPC) provides a recognised structure for classifying problems managed in general practice but lacks sufficient details for medical records. This paper describes an extended version of ICPC, based on the natural language of GPs in Australia, for use in computerised clinical systems.
