British Pediatric Association Classification of Diseases

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from CDC/BPA)

The British Pediatric Association Classification of Diseases is a system of diagnostic codes used for pediatrics.

An extension to ICD-9 was published in 1979.[1][2]

An extension to ICD-10 has also been published.[3]

It is the basis for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's six digit codes for reportable congenital conditions.[4] These are also known as the "CDC/BPA codes".[5][6] This system is in turn is the basis for the Texas Disease Index.[7]
