NHSR No. 108: Issues in Developing a Surveillance Case Definition for Nonfatal Suicide Attempt and Intentional Self-harm Using International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD–10–CM) Coded Data
Suicide and intentional self-harm are among the leading causes of death in the United States. To study this public health issue, epidemiologists and researchers often analyze data coded using the International Classification of Diseases (ICD). Prior to October 1, 2015, health care organizations and providers used the clinical modification of the Ninth Revision of ICD (ICD–9–CM) to report medical information in electronic claims data. The transition in October 2015 to use of the clinical modification of the Tenth Revision of ICD (ICD–10–CM) resulted in the need to update methods and selection criteria previously developed for ICD–9–CM coded data. This report provides guidance on the use of ICD–10–CM codes to identify cases of nonfatal suicide attempts and intentional self-harm in ICD–10–CM coded data sets.
