The International Classification of Diseases, 11th Revision Mortality and Morbidity Statistics (MMS) is one of the ICD11 linearizations. Information about the ICD Foundation Component and the ICD11 Linearizations can be found in the complete reference guide here: https://icd.who.int/icd11refguide/en/index.html

The ICD11 Linearizations (Tabular lists)

A linearization is a subset of the foundation component, that is:

  1. fit for a particular purpose: reporting mortality, morbidity, primary care or other uses;

  2. composed of entities that are Mutually Exclusive of each other;

  3. each entity is given a single parent.

Linearization is similar to the classical print versions of ICD Tabular List (e.g. volume I of ICD-10 or other previous editions). The main linearization of ICD-11 is Mortality and Morbidity Statistics (MMS). Various linearizations could be built at different granularity, use case or other purposes such as for Primary Care, Clinical Care or Research. The linkage from the foundation component to a particular linearization will ensure consistent use of the ICD.”
