This guide supports UCI’s innovation and entrepreneurship community by connecting users to relevant resources used to conduct research throughout the entrepreneurial process.

  • Tip: The ICD-CM (International Classification of Diseases, Clinical Modification) is used to code and classify both diagnoses and procedures. Current and previous versions of the ICD-CM are available through the CDC

Want More Statistics?
Advocacy groups (e.g., the American Heart Association) may collect and report more specific statistics than the US government. In Google, try a sample search like this: hearing loss association statistics

  • The following lists (alphabetically) are related to healthcare: Dental HMOs/PPOs, Drugmakers, HMOs, Hospitals, Medical Device Makers, and PPOs.
