  • Data Security and Protection Toolkit guidance for Clinical Coding Training and Audit

    Dear colleague The clinical coding audit guidance and training guidance associated with Data Standards 1 and 3 in the new Data Security & Protection Toolkit is now available in Delen and reflected in the toolkit . Coding departments should use these guidance documents when completing their annual assessments for the Data Security & Protection Toolkit. The guidance in these documents remains largely unchanged than that contained in the former Information Governance Toolkit Requirements 505 and 514 (audit) and 510 and 516 (training), just in a different format.
