Posted on April 8, 2009. Filed under: Health Informatics, Medical Records |

The newly-formed Australian Centre for Clinical Terminology and Information (ACCTI) commenced operations on Monday 9 February as part of the Centre for Health Service Development (CHSD) and the Sydney Business School, University of Wollongong.

The establishment of ACCTI will bring a range of specialist skills to the CHSD and complement our other centres:

·   The Australian Health Outcome Centre (AHOC)

·   The Australasian Rehabilitation Outcome Centre (AROC)

·   The Palliative Care Outcomes Collaboration (PCOC)

·   The Australian Occupational Science Centre (AOSC)

ACCTI will be led by Kerry Innes, Senior Research Fellow. Until recently Kerry was the Associate Director of the National Centre for Classification in Health, University of Sydney.  Kerry will be joined by three Research Fellows, who also previously worked at the NCCH: Patricia Saad; Donna Truran; and Ming Zhang.

ACCTI will focus on the development and use of clinical terminologies and data information strategies. The team has nationally and internationally recognised expertise in ICD and SNOMED CT and intends to build on and extend this expertise into new areas.  The CHSD expects that this new Centre will support and progress the nation’s eHealth agenda.
