Clinical Coding – Case for Change

Open for Consultation

Under the direction of the Technicians Support Services Industry Reference Committee (IRC), SkillsIQ is seeking feedback on the draft Case for Change for proposed updates to the Clinical Coding Training Package Products within the HLT Health Training Package.

There are three Units of Competency and one Skill Set currently packaged within the HLT Health Training Package. These are:

  • HLTADM005 Produce coded clinical data
  • HLTADM006 Undertake complex clinical coding
  • HLTADM007 Undertake highly complex clinical coding
  • HLTSS00048 Clinical Coding Skill Set.

The Case for Change proposes the update of the three existing Units and the Skill Set and also proposes the development of a new Qualification, a new Skill Set and seven new Units of Competency to address the gaps in the underpinning knowledge related to Clinical Coding in the Health Training Package Products.
