ABF Education and Research Strategy
6. Key Stakeholders
The key stakeholders with which IHPA must engage in relation to education, training and research are listed briefly below, together with the nature of their engagement.
6.1 Health Information Management Association of Australia (HIMAA)IHPA needs to engage with HIMAA not only as the peak body representing Health Information Management professionals in Australia, but also as a dedicated medical terminology and clinical coding training provider. Engagement will initially establish the present focus of HIMAA, what they are involved with and how best IHPA and CCSAA can work together to assist with each others roles.
6.2 UniversitiesCurrently, the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing is funding the National Casemix and Classification Centre (NCCC), University of Wollongong to July 2013 to deliver the 2012 AR DRG (vs 7) classification system and ICD10 AM (8th edition) and has funded the National Centre for Health Information Research & Training (NCHIRT) and the National Centre For Classification in Health (NCCH), University of Sydney in the past.
6.3 Clinical Costing Standards Association of AustraliaThe primary concern of the Clinical Costing Standards Association of Australia (CCSAA) is to develop clinical costing standards through a consultative process with clinical costing managers across a number of Health Services. The IHPA will engage with the CCSAA to establish the most appropriate arrangements for an ongoing relationship with the CCSAA in regard to developing and disseminating resources to support costing in hospitals.
