The Clinical Coding & Schedule Group
The Clinical Coding & Schedule Development Group (CCSD) CCSD Board are looking for input with regard to the CCSD Schedule, the common standard of procedure codes and narratives that are used within the independent healthcare sector.
Requests for new codes, narrative changes and inactivation of codes come from insurers, hospital providers and clinicians. The CCSD Working Group is responsible for reviewing these requests and, in order to ensure that the code set accurately and fully reflects current practice, often seek the advice of clinicians from within their own organisations.
CCSD would like to improve the use of clinical expertise during the decision-making process, in particular by gaining the expertise of independent leaders in their field. This would involve consultants, from time to time, providing advice and guidance to the CCSD Working Group on coding requests within their particular area of expertise on a pecuniary basis.
