Purpose: At this meeting, the Subcommittee on Populations will continue to assess the feasibility of using the International Classification of Impairments, Disabilities, and Handicaps (ICIDH) system to classify functional status on administrative health records, such as enrollment forms for health plans, records of medical encounters, and standardized attachments to such records. Panelists will explore issues related to the potential application of the ICIDH for such records and will discuss data collection and measurement efforts necessary to address the issues effectively. This is the third of several public meetings being planned by the Subcommittee to discuss the topic of the feasibility of recording functional status on administrative health records.
