What is the Clinical Coders’ Society of Australia?
The Clinical Coders’ Society of Australia Inc. (CCSA) was established in 1996 and is affiliated with the Health Information Management Association of Australia (HIMAA).
The CCSA constitution states that the primary objective of the Society is to provide a forum and support for Clinical Coders and those interested in the coding of health care data.
The CCSA aims to provide members with advice and support with:
- workforce and professional issues
- continuing education activities
- coder accreditation
In addition to helping raise the profile of Clinical Coders and to promote the understanding of the value of coded data.
The constitution of the CCSA enables membership to be offered to Clinical Coders, Health Information Managers, and those with an interest in clinical coding.
The CCSA is managed through a Managing Committee comprised of state and territory representatives, with a HIMAA committee member who acts as an ex-officio director.
