Abstract

Of particular interest was the description of the to employ the coder full-time, thereby gaining two ~ani~r digital dictation system. Apparently transcrip­ days of the coder's time "free" to work on its own tion IS completed by ward clerks using Wordperfect records. Macros set up on the Vax terminals. The medical officer • Royal Alexandra Hospital for Children in Sydney checks a?d signs the discharge summary immediately contracts out the filing of loose sheets. after typmg and sends a copy with the patient on dis­ Conclusion charge. A follow-up letter is sent in instances when Some interesting implied criticisms of MRAs as a outstanding results are pending. whole emerged during the Conference. Kent Maddock Olga Lukjanenko, Senior Consultant with Archon said that when MRAs first started working on the Heal~h Consult~nts Pty Ltd, outlined the coding HBCIS project they had trouble thinking in the long requirements which have arisen from the Compulsory term. He suggested that this was because so much of an Third Party (CTP) Insurance Scheme under the Motor MRA's work involves coping with problems which must Accidents Act 1988. A substantial database supports be solved immediately whereas project planning can the Scheme and Abbreviated Injury Scale
