Data Security and Protection Toolkit (DSPT)

Overview

The clinical coding audit guidance and clinical coding training guidance associated with Data Standards 1 and 3 in the Data Security and Protection Toolkit is available to support clinical coding departments when completing their annual assessments for the Data Security and Protection Toolkit.

The guidance in these documents remains largely unchanged but now reflects the reintroduction of 'levels' into the Toolkit and the closure of the Clinical Coding Academies. 

The Data Standards themselves and their associated assertions are still under review for the v2.0 Toolkit, so please be advised that the Clinical Coding page numbers in  Data Security Standard 1, as well as assertion numbers and text, may change before v2.0 goes live. Any changes will be reflected on this area of Delen. The clinical coding audit and training guidance is not expected to change. 

For further information please visit the FAQ area of the Toolkit.
