"I am just questioning the "Industry Standard" ,there is no detail on what is the Industry Standard for auditing, especially when it pertains to external coding audits. The rigour needed to assess an external coding auditor cannot be underestimated, the course completed by such an auditor is particularly important because of the financial and other performance-related implications directly impacted by the knowledge, capability, findings and recommendations of External Auditors. The existing Short course given by La Trobe University has such a delineation in their admission policy and assessment between an Internal Coding Auditor and an External Coding Auditor, this suggested course should not add confusion to potential employers who wish to employ an External Coding Auditor."

"Should a pre-requisite of health administration course be required? Agree there is a need for student placements throughout the diploma so understanding of the health system is gained, especially if have not worked in health environment before. We need to ensure graduates are competent to communicate, understand a health organisations and their systems and how health care is delivered. Information Community Technology (ICT) ICT level of literacy is required for the diploma. "

"Coding quality edit reviews could be considered in this unit. For example, review data element and complies with a specific part of the data set. To build up to a bigger audit project. I am not sure if the theory of audit and practical auditing has been covered well. In terms of using standardised tool (such as ACBA) and looking at the quality improvement cycle. "
