ClaM - A Classification Manager
The Usagekind is meant to support the dagger (etiology) and asterisk (manifestation) system in ICD, which is used as an alternative method to classify diagnostic statements including a general disease and a manifestation in a particular organ or site. Usagekinds can for example be applied to codes and labels.
The usagekind has a name and a symbol. ClaM places the symbol after the Code or the Label in which it has been assigned as shown in the example below.
