As Healthcare becomes not only nationally digitized it continues to lean toward a globally cohesive structure of data, allowing patients to receive competent, affordable care regardless of where they are when those services become necessary. This is currently being managed with a global disease codification process the ICD-9,10, 11, 12 and even 13 version. Here in the US, where we are significantly behind in codification, our Affordable Care Act is beginning to work to bridge the gap in data reporting. Perhaps one of your student teams would like to take on this important task.
