Medical diagnoses for clinical patients are recorded by a physician at the time of admission and discharge from hospital as well as death. Nowadays this information is documented in patient file not only in form of ordinary reports but also in ICD-10 codes to reach more accurate interpretation and use them in statistical surveys. ICD code assignment is a tedious, laborious and highly expensive procedure. Many health care organizations pursue the goal of developing automated procedures. This paper is going to introduce a new method that have machine learned from files with ordinary diagnosis and ICD- 10 codes and then will be able to find ICD-10 codes for patients who are not assigned and double checking codes of the others as well. Results of this system will be in form of probabilistic data.
