  • 1Department of General Practice, University of Sydney, New South Wales.


Standardised classifications are essential for reliable information management. The International Classification of Primary Care (ICPC) provides a recognised structure for classifying problems managed in general practice but lacks sufficient details for medical records. This paper describes an extended version of ICPC, based on the natural language of GPs in Australia, for use in computerised clinical systems.
