    Does anyone know the implementation date for ICD-11 for America? Or if it is even going to happen?
    Thank you,

    It is nothing to get worried about yet... ICD-11 CM has a projected date of Oct 1 2025. ICD-11 for all other counties looks like OCt 1 2018 It is an interesting code set to be sure. All codes start with a number or letter that corresponds to the chapter followed by a letter and then 2 digits then the decimal. It will be fun! They are also looking to eliminate the I and the O as it is confusing.

    2022 date is not a date for the USA. its for the international version. Using ICD-10 as an example if it was same first country adopts 2026 and USA adopts in 2050 or so. I'm almost 40 so ill probably be retired by the time USA implements

    The version given to the World Health Assembly in 2019 will go into effect on 1 January 2022. However, given the vast technical and technological adaptation and training required to move to a new system – thousands of coders from small primary health care clinics to large hospitals will need retraining – the switch from using ICD-10 to ICD-11 is unlikely to happen overnight.

    While there will be a few early adopters, not many countries are likely to adapt that quickly – some countries are still using ICD-9, and a few are even using ICD-8. ICD-10 which was released in 1990 was first implemented by Thailand in 1994; the USA only switched to it in 2015.
