Moorfields Eye Hospital and University College London Hospitals (UCLH) NHS Foundation Trust have won an award for data quality in clinical coding (specialist trust) at the Caspe Healthcare Knowledge Systems (CHKS) Top Hospital Awards in London.
It is the second year in a row that the organisations have been recognised with the accolade.
The award recognises the importance of clinical coding and data quality in ensuring appropriate patient care and financial reimbursement from commissioners.
The ceremony was hosted by ITV News medical correspondent, Sue Saville, at the Royal College of Physicians on 12 June.
Moorfields Eye Hospital’s head of performance and information, Ranjita Sen, said she was “delighted” at the recognition.
“We were competing with some fantastic, high profile organisations so to be acknowledged as leaders in the field of clinical coding is a really proud moment for us,” she emphasised.
“We’ve been working extremely hard over the past few years to improve data quality throughout the trust so we can provide the best care for our patients across the Moorfields network and help research through high quality diagnostic information,” Ms Sen highlighted.
