Research - Classifying ICPC-2 PLUS terms to ICD 10 and to ICD 10 AM

ICPC-2 PLUS is currently being used by about 1500 GPs in about 400 practices in their electronic health records, and by a range of researchers for the primary or secondary coding and classification of morbidity managed in primary care.

When there is a need to compare data collected in ICPC-2 with other data from hospitals or mortality statistics (in ICD 10 AM, or in ICD 10), the data need to be in the same classification.

When the ICPC-2 PLUS terms are classified according to ICD 10AM, users will be able to translate their PLUS terms into ICD10 AM as an alternative to the Australian national primary care standard classification of ICPC-2.
