I misunderstood that once ICD10 was available from one country, there would be 
little point to acquire it from a second source. However I now see that some 
countries have made their own modifications of ICD10.

While waiting for an answer from Canada as to whatever format it provides 
ICD-10-CA via

following is United States info which they will provide in PDF and XML (sample 

* United States *

The United States developed a clinical modification(-CM) of the classification 
for morbidity purposes. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) posts 
pre-production releases of ICD-10-CM (PDF, XML) for public viewing, cautioning 
that the codes contained are currently invalid for any purpose or use, having 
an effective implementation date of October 1, 2013 in advance of which updates 
are anticipated.

A sample of its XML is as follows (snipped at … )

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <ICD10CM.index> <version>2011</version>
