Coding and informatics

Coding and Informatics services analyze patient health information and assign standardized codes to create structured data. This data is used internally for decision-making, performance measurement and quality improvement; and externally for hospital funding, clinical research and national benchmarking.

The Health Information Management Coding team ensures that the mandatory reporting requirements of the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) and the Ministry of Health are fulfilled based on available patient documentation.

With expertise in nomenclature, classifications, clinical documentation improvement, data quality, data integrity, data mapping and analytics, the Coding team will provide support in these initiatives within the project.
