The quality of clinical coding in the NHS

17 October 2014

Our briefing on behalf of the Department of Health on the quality of clinical coding in the NHS sets out the findings from the 2013/14 PbR data assurance audit programme. For the past seven years we have reviewed the accuracy of clinical coding across the NHS, and in 2013/14 we audited 50 acute trusts. We found that the accuracy of clinical coding across the NHS remains variable - the coding of comorbidities remains an area of concern for both providers and commissioners. The briefing describes the causes of poor coded data, such as source documentation and the increasing pressures on coding departments, and considers the impact poor data quality will have on the planned developments for the national payment system. We have developed a checklist to enable Board members and senior managers to support improvement in the quality of coded data at their organisation. Please visit www.chks.co.uk/knowledge-base to download the briefing.
