REHABDATA Thesaurus - ICF Crosswalk

This Crosswalk pairs terms from our REHABDATA Thesaurus with terms and concepts from the World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF). The ICF is a comprehensive, hierarchically organized tool used by health organizations around the world to codify research, develop treatment codes, and more. The Thesaurus and ICF are very different catergorizing tools, but have some overlap. Where possible, we have matched most of the Thesaurus terms to ICF terms down to the fourth level (ICF V).

You may also wish to search for specific ICF codes or terms.
