  • Clinical Coding Managers Workspace

    We are designing a new Delen workspace to meet the needs of Clinical Coding Managers. The workspace will allow managers to stay up to date with the latest clinical coding news, access the clinical coding handbooks, join discussions with other Clinical Coding Managers and share relevant documentation. In order to help us to develop the workspace in a way that best meets your needs, we would like coding managers to work with us on the design and testing. If you are able to get involved, please complete this very short questionnaire to express your interest and give us an insight into the some of the things that you would find useful.

To ensure we investigated this proposal in full, all members of the Terminology & Classifications Delivery Service with expertise in classifications were asked to review the proposal.
