On September 8, 2022, the Government of Canada updated the medical assessment coding, which now reflects medical profile and assessment and surveillance codes. Medical assessment coding provides a standard way to report medical information. The code is used to track patient progress and to understand how different diseases or conditions progress over time. The new coding will help ensure that medical examinations are conducted in a consistent manner and provide better data to support policy decisions. The change will also make it easier for people to understand their medical assessment results.
