ICD Stands for International Classification of Diseases. It is a coding system maintained by the World Health Organization and the U.S. National Center for Health Statistics used to classify causes of death on death certificates and diagnoses, injury causes, and medical procedures for hospital and emergency department visits. These codes are updated every decade or so to account for advances in medical technology. The U.S. is currently using the 10th revision (ICD-10) to code causes of death. The 9th revision (ICD-9) has been used for hospital and emergency department visits until 3rd quarter of 2015. The ICD-10 was used from the 4th quarter of 2015.

The Hospital Discharge Database (HDDB) contains the consolidated information on complete billing, medical codes, and personal characteristics describing a patient, the services received, and charges billed for each inpatient hospital stay. The OHCS receives discharge data quarterly from hospitals in various format and media. The data are converted into a standardized format. The data are validated through a process of automated editing and report verification. Each record is subjected to a series of edits that check for accuracy, consistency, completeness, and conformity with the definitions specified in the Data Submittal Manual. Records failing the edit check are returned to the data supplier for corrections of comment.
Coverage and Validity of Diagnosis Codes: Since the data come from the billing forms, all visits or encounters have a Diagnosis code making coverage great. There is some difference of opinion regarding whether some providers may emphasize Diagnosis codes that yield higher reimbursements. The hospital and ED data are considered "Administrative Data" because they were created for use in billing and remittance of payment. As such, they were not constructed for public health surveillance purposes primarily, and are weak in some areas, such as external cause of injury and race or ethnicity. But, in general, they are extremely valuable and reasonably complete and valid.
