The Australian Coding Standards (ACS) for the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, Tenth Revision, Australian Modification (ICD-10-AM) and the Australian Classification of Health Interventions (ACHI) apply to all public and private hospitals in Australia. It is anticipated that revisions will be made on a regular basis and that further editions will follow. The ongoing revision of the Australian Coding Standards will ensure that they reflect changes in clinical practice, clinical classification amendments, Australian Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (AR-DRG) updates and various user requirements of inpatient data collections.
