CHKS Clinical Coding and Data Quality Conference 2016

Good quality data to transform healthcare

12 October 2016, King's Fund, 11-13 Cavendish Square, London W1G 0AN

Over 130 delegates gathered this week for the CHKS Clinical Coding and Data Quality Conference 2016 at the King’s Fund in London. This year’s conference brought together national bodies, professional leads, clinicians, clinical coders, healthcare providers, commissioners and insurers to discuss the future direction, wider use of, and impact of healthcare data in both the NHS and private healthcare sectors.

With speakers and attendees from across the UK, we learnt more about how good quality data is critical to transform healthcare. Discussion themes included:

  • National updates from NHS Improvement, NHS England and NHS Digital on coding and data quality and their importance to tariff development and financial viability
  • New models of care, the Carter report and the impact of the quality information
  • The introduction of HRG4+ and how it will influence payment and price
  • Engaging with clinicians to ensure data truly reflects the care delivered
  • Future developments and their implications: SNOMED CT, ICD-11, and electronic patient records - The NHS outside England – sharing learning, experiences and good practice from Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales
  • How are top hospitals ensuring they have excellent quality data?
