The Coding Committee (CC) is a special Committee with a fixed board, highly specialized in the area of development and promotion of the International Paediatric and Congenital Cardiac Code (IPCCC), in conjunction with the International Society for Nomenclature of Paediatric and Congenital Heart Disease (ISNPCHD) – www.IPCCC.net.
The principle goal of the CC and the ISNPCHD is to provide a global coding and nomenclature system for paediatric and congenital heart disease, inclusive of definitions and images, so as to be able to code scientifically accurate phenotypes and associated procedures in registries and databases using the IPCCC and related Short Lists, to help ensure high standards are maintained across the spectrum of healthcare for the benefit of patients and their families, irrespective of the language or related discipline involved.
