ICHPPC presents a uniform classification of the problems that constitute the daily work of physicians. It is an adaptation of the International Classification of Diseases, and groups the detailed ICD lists into a shorter list of the conditions most significant in primary medical care. Translated into six languages and used worldwide, the list is recognized as the standard reference for the study of expressed morbidity and workload in family and general practice. ICHPPC is especially useful due to its ability to accommodate changes in concepts of health and disease, new developments in primary care delivery, and local fluctuations in the importance of problems to be classified, without threatening comparability. Simple and brief, the list can be used effectively by health workers in various disciplines and settings. It also allows comparisons with work from other fields of medicine due to its close alignment with ICD-9.
