The ICDmap was developed by an AAAM technical mapping group consisting of experts trained in the WHO ICD Revisions and ICD country modifications, and the application of the AIS including trainers from the International Faculty.  Members of the group are qualified in nursing, health information management, biomedicine, classification, data management and clinical research. Several members are active in the development of AIS revision and ICD country-specific modifications, and several had experience in classification mapping projects.

The reason a technical group was chosen by AAAM was to assure that definitions for the work could be developed to provide consistent mapping outcomes and maintain relativity between the two coding systems.
