MIA - Mapping ICD Classification Codes With ATC Codes


Q: What is MIA?
A: MIA is firstly open source website to publish mappings between ICD 10 codes to ATC codes. Based on the ATC fifth level codes of drugs and the ICD codes, Totally, there are 3420 mapping entries. It could help the utilization or reutilization of drugs and the drug pricing and reimbursement policies.


Q: Functions provided in MIA?
A: 1. Lists Browsing:
(i) ATC-ICD List, map ICD disease codes with ATC drug codes throught the DrugBank drugs. Up to date 1194 ATC codes are mapped to 980 ICD codes manually generating 3420 ICD-ATC mappings.
(ii) Drug ATC List, obtain from an official ATC documentation at http://ec.europa.eu/health/documents/community-register/html/atc.htm.

2. Users can retrieval the bridge drug to get the results by searching drug names or drug molecular SMILES (Structure tab). MIA allows researchers to input a compound in SMILES format or to draw one online. Fragment tab is searching bridge drugs contain the input fragment.
3. Users also can search disease name to get the disease's ICD codes, treatment durgs, and the drugs' atc codes.
