The CRGH Performance Monitoring Coding and Casemix Unit (PMCCU) is responsible for providing accurate, timely and complete classification of diagnoses and procedures for the NSW Ministry of Health inpatient coding morbidity submission deadlines.
The Clinical Coder will use ICD-10-AM/ACHI classifications, Australian Coding Standards (ACS) and the 3M Codefinder to classify diagnoses and procedures extracted from the medical record as part of the coding process.
The Clinical Coder will also undertake functions relating to coding, grouping and data quality by analysing the Diagnosis Related Group (DRG) in the final stages of coding to ensure the DRG is appropriate for the patient’s complexity.
The Clinical Coder will be responsible for escalating coding queries relating to documentation with the clinicians to ensure all diagnoses and procedures are captured for coding.
