It is a very very very bad practice to ask clinicians to code!

Standardizing diagnosis is a very different thing than asking clinicians to
code, the first is the strategy, the second is one possible, and bad,
implementation.

There are 3 ways of "coding" that I know of: 1. primary coding (ask
clinicians and other clinical users to code directly), 2. secondary coding
(users record information, a team of specialists do the coding later), 3.
assisted coding (software helps users to code, and there are many ways of
doing this, from NLP to GUI wizards).

But I'm not sure if Karsten was talking about this, let's wait :)
