The options are:
Heather Grain attended the HL7 International meeting at which consideration of the method and priorities for development of Health Level 7 (healthcare messaging) skills internationally were a key focus. Heather will be working with Ted Klein from the Vocabulary Work Group to define the competencies for Vocabulary management as a starting point for this review.
eHE staff attended the International Health Terminology Standards Development Organisation Education Meeting this month.
At this meeting the IHTSDO Education SIG confirmed the competencies for SNOMED CT Generalist training and certification. EHE has the first course in the world built to help you build these competencies.
Working with senior Health Information Management educators from NSW and Victoria and experienced clinical coders and auditors, we now offer an integrated clinical coding skill development pathway that includes not only clinical coding, the vocabulary, anatomy and physiology for coding, but also sample health records, administrative, reporting, and casemix information which can be taken at various job levels and built up over time.
The course includes active tutor and mentoring support, so if you work in a day stay centre you can obtain the skills you need in that role, and develop your career over time.
