Have you ever wondered what the diagnosis codes on your sick note actually mean? Since January 1, 2000, diagnoses have been coded as per ICD-10 for outpatient and inpatient care. The abbreviation ICD stands for "International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems"; the number 10 means the 10th revision. This classification was issued by the World Health Organization and translated into German by DIMDI.

The diagnosis thesaurus now allows you to translate this code.
