The International Classification of Primary Care (ICPC) is a classification method for primary care encounters. It allows for the classification of the patient's reason for encounter (RFE), the problems/diagnosis managed, primary or general health care interventions, and the ordering of the data of the primary care session in an episode of care structure. It was developed by the WONCA International Classification Committee (WICC), and was first published in 1987 by Oxford University Press (OUP). A revision and inclusion of criteria and definitions was published in 1998. The second revision was accepted within the World Health Organization's (WHO) Family of International Classifications.

WHO Family of International Classifications .
A suite of classification products that may be used in an integrated fashion to compare health information internationally as well as nationally. Internationally endorsed classifications facilitate the storage, retrieval, analysis, and interpretation of data and their comparison within populations over time and between populations at the same point in time as well as the compilation of internationally consistent data. Populations may be Nations, States and Territories, regions, minority groups or other specified groups. The purposes of the WHO-FIC are to: improve health through provision of sound health information to support decision making at all levels; provide a conceptual framework of information domains for which classifications are, or are likely to be, required for purposes related to health and health management; provide a suite of endorsed classifications for particular purposes defined within the framework; promote the appropriate selection of classifications in a wide range of settings in the health field across the world; establish a common language to improve communication; permit comparisons of data within and between member states, health care disciplines, services and time; and to stimulate research on health and the health system.
