> ABSTRACT
> Now that the United States has finally transitioned to the 10th revision
> of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10), we can
> anticipate the 11th revision, just around the corner.  In developing
> ICD-11, the World Health organization is adopting some rather novel
> representational choices, including the use of a formal “content model”
> to frame the description of each entity in the classification; the
> ability to extract views (“linearizations”) from the standard
> classification to meet the needs of particular tasks (e.g., representing
> morality, representing mortality, coding descriptions for low-resource
> settings); the "post-coordination" of terms to simplify the enumeration
> of complex expressions; and the adoption of OWL.  We will discuss the
> design of ICD-11, and what the migration to this next version of ICD
> might be like.
