CIF Hosts workshop on Classifications for Hospital and Laboratory intervention
On March 5, 2009 the CIF, in the framework of USAID funded CoReform project organized the workshop on Classifications for Hospital and Laboratory intervention.
On March 5, 2009 the workshop on Classifications for Hospital, Ambulatory and Laboratory interventions was held. Over 23 participants representing MOLSHA, Health and Social Programs Agency (HeSPA), Georgian Insurance Association (GIA), Social Services Agency, private insurance companies and USAID along with other members of the project attended the workshop. Event participants were presented and handed-over those classifications (NCSP and laboratory interventions) which do not require license as a necessary precondition for implementation.
The effort became possible in the framework of one of the components of the USAID funded CoReform project which aims at supporting insurance companies in registering and processing the information received from providers and establishing effective reporting system between private insurance companies and the Ministry. This was achieved through a) translating and adapting to the Georgian realities international classifications for medical interventions: NOMESCO Classification for Surgical Procedures (NCSP) and the International Classification for Primary Care (ICPC 2) developed by WONCA; and b) developing suitable for Georgia laboratory interventions widely using international experience.
After securing license for ICPC2 (since NCSP does not need it) the Ministry planns to issue normative decree to make all classifications official national classifications.
