The mICD-10 is an innovative project led by the MOASIS team, which is aimed at developing a mobile phone application for quick consultation in the ICD-10 database. The use of ICD-10 coding to classify diseases within the mortality and morbidity in Mozambique began actively in 2006.
The MOH with support from mOASIS managed to install information systems based on ICD-10, but the collection and quality of data has been severely impacted by the lack of access to ICD-10 codes by physicians who certify the cause of death or internment in accordance with the rules of the ICD-10. The mobile application mICD aims to make it easy, convenient and ubiquitous process of classification and coding of diseases using the ICD-10 classification.
