Codes are pivotal to every piece of data we enter into our clinical systems. They determine:

• Patient’s past medical history
• Patient’s on-going clinical care
• Clinical governance
• Income

Because of these reasons, it is essential that everyone who enters patient data has received the appropriate training.

This seminar will also touch on data quality & validation techniques to help ensure the accuracy of patient data.

When summarising patient records, what should we be including? A summary enables the clinician to see at a glance the patient’s medical history & to provide accurate & appropriate on-going treatment.

Everyone who enters any patient data onto the clinical system could be contributing to a patient summary,
therefore, everyone needs to understand what a summary is, why it is important & what information should
be included.

Who should attend?

All members of staff who enter coded data into patient records – this webinar is primarily aimed at non-clinical staff.

How will this webinar benefit you?

These webinars will ensure all delegates grasp the key messages around SNOMED CT, why they are important & how inconsistent data entry will affect patient care & safety as well as practice income. The summarising webinar will ensure staff members are fully aware of what a patient summary needs to deliver
for on-going patient care.
