The International Classification of Health Interventions (ICHI) is a member of the WHO Family of International Classifications, being developed to provide a common tool for reporting and analysing health interventions for statistical purposes. A web-based platform for classification development and update has been specifically developed to support the initial development step and then, after final approval, the continuous revision and update of the classification. The platform provides features for classification editing, versioning, comment management and URI identifiers. During the last 12 months it has been used for developing the ICHI Beta version, replacing the previous process based on the exchange of Excel files. At November 2017, 90 users have provided input to the development of the classification, which has resulted in 2913 comments and 2971 changes in the classification, since June 2017. Further work includes the development of an URI API for machine to machine communication, following the model established for ICD-11.
