Go here to enter diagnoses and code in ICD-11: https://icd.who.int/en
For example, open the ICD-11 online link and click on “Browse the release version.” Then choose “Coding Tool” tab at the top.

So why the update to ICD-11?
- ICD-10, despite the updating process, is outdated
- Structural changes were needed to some chapters
- Increasing need to operate in an electronic environment
- Revision process was launched in April 2007
