Undertake complex clinical coding

Formats and tools

Unit Description
Reconstruct the unit from the xml and display it as an HTML page.
Assessment Tool
an assessor resource that builds a framework for writing an assessment tool
Assessment Template
generate a spreadsheet for marking this unit in a classroom environment. Put student names in the top row and check them off as they demonstrate competenece for each of the unit's elements and performance criteria.
Assessment Matrix
a slightly different format than the assessment template. A spreadsheet with unit names, elements and performance criteria in separate columns. Put assessment names in column headings to track which performance criteria each one covers. Good for ensuring that you've covered every one of the performance criteria with your assessment instrument (all assessement tools together).
Wiki Markup
mark up the unit in a wiki markup codes, ready to copy and paste into a wiki page. The output will work in most wikis but is designed to work particularly well as a Wikiversity learning project.
Evidence Guide
create an evidence guide for workplace assessment and RPL applicants
Competency Mapping Template
Unit of Competency Mapping – Information for Teachers/Assessors – Information for Learners. A template for developing assessments for a unit, which will help you to create valid, fair and reliable assessments for the unit, ready to give to trainers and students
Observation Checklist
create an observation checklist for workplace assessment and RPL applicants. This is similar to the evidence guide above, but a little shorter and friendlier on your printer. You will also need to create a seperate Assessor Marking Guide for guidelines on gathering evidence and a list of key points for each activity observed using the unit's range statement, required skills and evidence required (see the unit's html page for details)

Self Assessment Survey
A form for students to assess thier current skill levels against each of the unit's performance criteria. Cut and paste into a web document or print and distribute in hard copy.
Moodle Outcomes
Create a csv file of the unit's performance criteria to import into a moodle course as outcomes, ready to associate with each of your assignments. Here's a quick 'how to' for importing these into moodle 2.x

Elements and Performance Criteria



Elements define the essential outcomes

Performance criteria describe the performance needed to demonstrate achievement of the element.

1. Abstract clinical data from moderately complex medical records

1.1 Interpret and apply the Australian coding standards (ACS) to identify clinical data from moderately complex medical records

1.2 Select appropriate conditions/diseases and procedures for coding from moderately complex medical records

1.3 Identify the principal diagnosis and principal procedure for an admission when coding from moderately complex medical records

1.4 Identify additional diagnoses and procedures

1.5 Establish the correct sequencing of diagnoses and procedures

2. Assign codes relating to moderately complex medical records

2.1 Apply ACS where appropriate, to ensure the correct assignment of codes when coding from moderately complex medical records for a range of specialties

2.2 Assign complete and accurate International statistical classification of diseases and related health problems (ICD-10-AM), disease codes and Australian Classification of Health Interventions (ACHI) procedure codes

2.3 Utiliseresources where appropriate to assist in making coding decisions

2.4 Recognise problems relating to privacy and confidentiality of client information

2.5 Maintain confidentiality of medical records and client information at all times

2.6 Complete the process of assigning the correct codes from moderately complex medical records within appropriate timeframes

2.7 Meet work health and safety duty of care requirements

3. Maintain clinical coding records

3.1 Record, enter, edit and maintain a client information system of coded data (disease index)

3.2 Address changes to data collection and coding requirements, according to relevant standards, protocols and legislation

3.3 Make amendments to data collection and coding activities in line with organisation requirements

3.4 Maintain and update own knowledge and skills to ensure that amendments are addressed as required
