The only one of its kind in the world, this course is designed to provide knowledge and develop skills in the auditing of coded data and analysing and reporting on audit outcomes.
Designed for experienced professionals in Australia and New Zealand (conversant with ICD-10-AM 12th edition), this online, self-paced course is designed to enhance your skills in auditing coded data, use of contemporary audit tools, analysing results, providing effective feedback, reporting on audit outcomes and developing organisational recommendations.

This specialised course also offers eligible health information managers and clinical coders the option of a certificate of competency in internal, or external clinical coding auditing, for which they must demonstrate substantial competence in an ICD-10-AM (12th edition) classification benchmarking test, audit report and final short course examination.
There are four modules in the course:

- Module 3 - Statistical Analysis, Methodology, and use of Contemporary Audit Tools
- Module 4 - Audit Outcomes: Reporting and Strategic Development
Clinical Coding Benchmarking Test
Before committing to our Clinical Coding Auditing short course, where you will gain certification that is recognised by industry, government health departments and the Health Information Management Association of Australia (HIMAA), this Skills Assessment will confirm your eligibility for the course and ensure that you get the most out of it.
Clinical Coding Auditors need (and are expected by employers) to have advanced coding skills, understand and apply ICD-10-AM and ACHI coding conventions, and have a thorough working knowledge of the Australian Coding Standards and current national ratified advice.
The Skills Assessment is an online, supervised clinical coding test covering a broad range of casemix which will determine if you have the required accuracy to be eligible for the External and Internal Clinical Coding Auditing certification or Internal Clinical Coding Auditing Certification. The test will enable you to ‘benchmark’ your coding level nationally and is necessary for the Course Management Committee to ascertain your coding skill level and confirm the type of Auditing Certificate for which your current skills are suited. A small administrative fee is charged to undertake the test which is deducted from the overall short course cost fee if you take the course.
You must achieve a score of 85% or more to be eligible for the Certificate of External and Internal Clinical Coding Auditing and a score of 75-84% to be eligible for the Certificate of Internal Clinical Coding Auditing.
Once you have completed the Skills Assessment test and demonstrated at least 75% accuracy, you will be able to register in the Clinical Coding Auditing short course.
