I am concerned about the quality of our clinical coded data. I believe the focus for Clinical Coders (CCs) should be on all conditions that meet criteria for code assignment in order to describe the patient stay fully and truthfully – the ‘clinical truth’ as per the writingsand presentations of Dr Cesar Limjoco, a Clinical Documentation Improvement (CDI) Physician Advisor Consultant from the United States of America (USA) (Limjoco 2014).
