What is ICD Coding
ICD Coding is the task of assigning a code from the ICD code set to a diagnosis. Once a MD (or an expert coder) has defined a diagnosis for a clinical condition, he should classify that condition under one or more ICD codes:
This process requires a great amount of human time and effort, as a result, it’s costly, tedious and prone to error. Our goal is to provide a solution that could ease the coding task while improving correctness of coding.
The ICD Code Retrieval approach combine different techniques from text mining, text categorization and information retrieval:
most relevant codes are returned for manual selection.
external sources are parsed and weighted for training set expansion.

user selection is used as a relevance feedback to improve the accuracy over time.
