(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) The Supreme Council of Health (SCH) has recently appointed GlobeMed Coding School as the exclusive training vendor for the ICD-10-AM training in the State of Qatar. The selection was made through a competitive process and by the recommendation of a special Technical Committee consisted of main stakeholders in the health information management field. The launch of this project came as a result of the Supreme Council of Health mandate requiring all healthcare providers in the State of Qatar to adopt the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, Australian Modification (ICD-10-AM) and the Australian Classification of Health Interventions (ACHI), Seventh Edition. Coding according to these standards is a pre requisite to all existing providers and those that will be joining the newly established National Health Insurance Scheme, as part of the claims and data submission to the National Health Insurance Company (NHIC). In order to achieve and maintain the required capacity and skills for ICD 10 AM coding, all providers must receive this standardized and approved by Supreme Council of Health training. "Establishing a coding training programme is a further step towards the improvement of the quality of coding and activity data capturing in the health sector which will not only improve the transparency of health care provision in the State of Qatar but will also enable building performance and quality tools", stated Dr. Faleh Mohamed Hussain Ali, the Assistant Secretary General for Policy Affairs. Husein Reka, Health Insurance Manager at Supreme Council of Health explained that the ongoing and continuous training is necessary if the required quality standards are to be achieved since coding and classification are the building blocks for health information: "The appointment of GlobeMed Coding School will address the increased demand for certified coders with the launch of the National Health Insurance Scheme and it will aid providers in building capacity or improving their existing coding capacity until a National Centre for Classification and Coding is established". GlobeMed Coding School was established in Lebanon in 2002 through an affiliation with the Saint-Joseph University and expanded to Saudi Arabia in 2011. The GlobeMed Coding School offers coding programs in health information according to international classifications and local nomenclatures. "Following our great achievements in 2013, we, at GlobeMed Qatar, are confident that we will be up to this new task entrusted to us and we will continue to strive to offer superior services that can contribute in taking healthcare to the next levels ", stated Mr. Salem Haidar, GlobeMed Regional Vice President. For her part, Mrs. Amira Eid, Head of the Coding Program, added, "While we take great pride on this new achievement, as the exclusive training provider for the healthcare industry in Qatar, it comes as a result of dedication, hard work and expertise, in the aim of contributing in the upgrade of the knowledge levels in the healthcare field across the region." In addition to regular classroom courses, the coding programs include online sessions through i*School , an electronic learning platform developed by GlobeMed, designed to meet the various learning need
