Clinical Coding National Networking Forum 2018
Bringing coders and clinicians together for one day only, this unique and empowering forum will help clinical coders to code more accurately by offering an insight into co-morbidities, medical specialities and medicine for older people, sepsis, vascular surgery and orthopaedic surgery, as well as showcasing an update on the profession from PACC-UK.
Developed in collaboration with PACC-UK since 2015, this networking forum offers clinical coders a valuable opportunity to hear from experienced clinicians and subsequently establish better, more supportive lines of communication between the two. Priced at only £149 plus VAT before 8th July for all NHS and public sector employees, this event is designed for coders to attend with their coding team.
This conference is returning for a fourth year to create a space in which clinicians and coders can share knowledge and enable accurate clinical coding. The agenda for 2018 will include:
- Clinical insight session on co-morbidity variables: when co-morbidities are and are not relevant
- Clinical coders’ discussion on best practice for coding co-morbidities
- Clinical insight session on medicine: understanding the common challenges of medicine for older people
- Clinical coders’ discussion on subjectivity and variability of coding in medical specialities
- Clinical insight session surgery: osteoarthritis and ankle and foot procedures, and vascular graft surgery
- Clinical insight session on sepsis: when sepsis is the main condition treated
- Clinical coders’ discussion on their current position and future expectations
Providing vital clinical insight to enable confident, accurate coding, this is a must attend forum for the whole coding team:
- Heads of Clinical Coding, Clinical Coding Managers
- Clinical Coders and Clinical Coding Trainers
- Trainee Clinical Coders
- Clinical Coding Auditors
