The International Classification of Disease, Eleventh Revision (ICD-11) is a system of medical coding created by the World Health Organization (WHO) for documenting diagnoses, diseases, signs and symptoms and social circumstances.

ICD-11 will incorporate a more interactive Web platform, with daily updates and a search site, to help physicians call upon codes more easily. In addition, ICD-11 will be released in multiple languages, unlike the purely English release of ICD-10. The WHO has stated that ICD-11 will be electronic health record (EHR) ready.
