Clinical Coding – Case for Change

The Technicians Support Services Industry Reference Committee (IRC) is responsible for ensuring that nationally recognised qualifications deliver the skills and knowledge required to equip the sectors under its remit with a highly skilled workforce.

SkillsIQ, under the direction of the Technicians Support Services IRC, has prepared a Case for Change to update three Units of Competency and one Skill Set, and to develop a new Qualification and seven new Units of Competency in Clinical Coding to address key issues relating to:

  • Qualification outcomes, including industry concern regarding the level and strength of skills and knowledge contained within individual Units of Competency and their associated Assessment Requirements;
  • The availability of appropriate training to meet the Knowledge Requirements for Clinical Coders; and
  • Pathways for Clinical Coders in Australia.
