The International ICD-10-Homeo-Hackathon
We are happy to announce our new project in collaboration with the Government Homeopathic Medical College and Hospital in Bhopal (India). Our aim is to link the ICD with homeopathic concepts of disease progression and cure.
Homeopaths know that the appearance of different diseases over a lifetime is not random. It follows certain rules, same as the course of a cure should follow particular rules.
The objective of this project is to link homeopathic knowledge to the ICD-10 (International classification of disease) in order to make this knowledge easily applicable for colleagues from all medical professions.
Further, we will analyse large datasets on an AI (artificial intelligence) basis, to recognize patterns that can be helpful to make informed decisions in terms of therapies and health policy issues.
This project is only possible with the expertise and diligence of the colleagues from Bhopal and we are looking forward to welcome them as Campace fellows. Our special thanks goes to:
