Some 3,200 German doctors are to test ICD-10, the new version of the disease code, which is due to be implemented in January 1998. Testing began on April 1st, 1997, and involves doctors in Niedersachsen and Sachsen-Anhalt, reports Arzte Zeitung. The code was originally intended to be effective from January 1st, 1996, but was postponed because of pressure from doctors and data protection groups (see Clinica No 688, p 3).
