Australian classification of health interventions: ACHI: Alphabetic index of interventions

Book


Abstract


  • The Alphabetic Index of Interventions of the Australian Classification of Health Interventions (ACHI) is an

    alphabetic index to the ACHI Tabular List ofinterventions.

    The Alphabetic Index of Interventions is important because it contains many more procedural terms than

    those. appearing in the ACHI Tabular List of Interventions.

    Never code directly from the Alphabetic Index. After locating a code in the index, refer to that code in the

    Tabular List for important instructions, such as 'includes' and 'excludes' notes. These instructions provide

    guidance on the use of additional codes, sequencing and exclusion notes which indicate rules such as when

    a procedure would be coded elsewhere.
