The way I understood the question is that Marc is lookin for the format that 
is mostly widley used across countries. I would assume he would then look into 
writing an importer based on that format because then he does not have to 
write an importer for each format. Othere formats can be converted into the 
most widely used format.

Whatever he meant. The original questions remains.

In you country (e.g. Canada). What format is it that ICD-10 data is supplied ?
