The ICD has been revised and published in a series of editions to reflect advances in health and medical science over time.ICD defines the universe of diseases, disorders, injuries and other related health conditions, listed in a comprehensive, hierarchical fashion that allows for: - easy storage, retrieval and analysis of health information for evidenced-based decision-making; - sharing and comparing health information between hospitals, regions, settings and countries; and - data comparisons in the same location across different time periods.Uses include monitoring of the incidence and prevalence of diseases, observing reimbursements and resource allocation trends, and keeping track of safety and quality guidelines.Although the first updates to the classification were approved at the annual meeting of WHO Collaborating Centres for the Family of International Classifications in Tokyo, Japan in 1996, the current formal mechanisms to guide the updating process were not established until later.Two separate bodies were established to manage the updating process: the Mortality Reference Group (MRG) in 1998, and the Updating and Revision Committee (URC) in 2000.The first international classification edition, known as the International List of Causes of Death, was adopted by the International Statistical Institute in 1893.WHO was entrusted with the ICD at its creation in 1948 and published the 6th version, ICD-6, that incorporated morbidity for the first time.ICD-10 was endorsed by the Forty-third World Health Assembly in May 1990 and came into use in WHO Member States as from 1994.ICD is currently under revision, through an ongoing Revision Process, and the release date for ICD-11 is 2018.For his service and actions in Iraq, Wenstrup was awarded the Bronze Star and Combat Action Badge. Following his deployment to Iraq, Wenstrup saw a need for strong leadership in Cincinnati.In 2009, Wenstrup built a strong grassroots coalition and ran for Mayor of Cincinnati.
