Dr. Patrick Romano to serve on ICD-11 Work Group
Patrick Romano, a UC Davis Health physician and professor, has accepted an opportunity to serve on the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics (NCVHS) Work Group on Timely and Strategic Action to Inform ICD-11 Policy. The committee is also known as the ICD-11 Work Group.
“The purpose of the Work Group is to gather information from a broad range of sources to bring to NCVHS in its effort to develop advice and recommendations to the Department of Health and Human Services regarding adoption of ICD-11 as the official diagnosis code set for all health care claims, transactions, and data in the United States,” Romano said.
Romano added that ICD-11 has been adopted by the World Health Organization in 2022.
