3 INTRODUCTION WorkSafe Victoria WorkSafe Victoria works with the community to deliver outstanding workplace safety, together with quality care and insurance protection to employers and workers. This Booklet VCode is WorkSafe s system for classifying the nature of injury/disease associated with workers compensation claims in Victoria. This booklet clearly sets out the codes required to be entered into ACCtion for each claim. These codes have been applied to all claims (including existing ongoing claims) from 1 July The booklet provides listings of codes for: VCode: Nature of Injury/Disease Office of the Australian Safety and Compensation Council listing, Cwlth of A: Mechanism of Injury/Disease Bodily Location of Injury/Disease Agency/Breakdown Agency of Injury/Disease The Australian Standard Classification of Occupation Second Edition listing, ABS: Occupations.

4 CODING GUIDELINES FOR VCODE 3 These guidelines will assist coders/claims managers in classifying, or determining the correct nature of injury/disease code, for a workers compensation claim. Nature of Injury/Disease Use of the Index to Nature of Injury/Disease (see page 33) will provide the correct code quickly and easily when coders are unfamiliar with the VCode system. This Index will identify the probable classification. Always confirm the classification by referring to the includes and excludes of the classification as well as related areas. Sprains of joints and strains of muscles are only relevant to traumatic events (see Traumatic joint/ligament and muscle/tendon injury on page 12). Certificate of Capacity If a Certificate of Capacity is received with the claim form, it must be used as the basis for assigning a nature of injury code. Coding Guidelines There are two boxes on the Certificate of Capacity; one box is for the description of the injury/condition, the other is for the diagnosis. The preferred source of information for classifying the nature of the injury/disease is the first injury mentioned in the diagnosis section of the Certificate of Capacity. However, it may be necessary to use information in the description box as well as the diagnosis box to determine the code. Coders should look for the required information in the box marked diagnosis on the certificate (and the description box if necessary) and then look for the named injury/disease in the Nature of Injury/Disease Index. If a new term, which is not listed in the Index, is encountered, consult an authoritative medical dictionary for clarification or contact the issuing doctor for advice. Each and every valid Certificate of Capacity must be individually classified and recorded on the computer system. This allows for the nature of the injury/disease to be monitored over time by WorkSafe. It is common for a diagnosis to be refined as test results and further information become available to the treating doctor. Problems that were initially secondary to the primary problem may come to the fore. If this occurs, DO NOT update the original classification code unless clerical error is detected. Certificates of Capacity that are blank, marked As previously documented or illegible, cannot be coded. No Initial Certificate of Capacity Valid claims may arrive without an attached Certificate of Capacity. If the claim does not require a Certificate of Capacity for registration, the following guidelines should be adopted using information from the worker s claim form. Coding Guidelines If the worker states a single nature of injury/disease, classify the claim to that injury/disease. Workers often leave the nature of injury/disease section blank and just state a body part. If there is no evidence of trauma (like a fall or cut), classify the symptoms to the most relevant musculoskeletal disorder. For example, Back, Back Injury or Sore back should be coded to 459 Back pain, strain (non traumatic), lumbago, sciatica. Descriptive terms such as bad, hurts, sore and painful, without evidence of trauma, are all taken to indicate a musculoskeletal disorder. Workers often list many body parts/injuries on the form which makes it difficult to determine which one is the most serious. If there is no evidence of trauma or similar (e.g. a fall or cut), classify the claim to 599 Diseases of the musculoskeletal system and connective tissue, nec. DELINES FOR VCODE 4

5 VCODE NATURE OF INJURY/DISEASE VCode Nature of Injury/Disease Codes Summary Poisoning Injury and Poisoning Injuries/poisonings are usually the result of a single traumatic event where the harm or hurt is immediately apparent. For example, a cut resulting from a slip with a knife, or burns resulting from an acid splash. An injury will usually involve an obvious force. Intracranial Injuries codes Fractures codes Wounds, Lacerations and Amputations codes Burns codes Injury to Nerves and Spinal Cord codes Traumatic joint/ligament and muscle/tendon injury codes Other Injuries codes Conditions, Diseases and Disorders Diseases/conditions/disorders usually results from repeated or long-term exposure to an agent or event, for example, a musculoskeletal condition may develop through long term exposure to stressing of the body. Some conditions may be the result of a single traumatic event. For example, a worker robbed at gunpoint may develop a mental disorder, or a meat worker may suffer a single exposure to leptospirosis. An injury or poisoning may develop into a disease/condition/disorder. For example, a worker who suffers a poisoning may go on to suffer liver failure and a traumatic joint/ligament or muscle tendon injury may develop into a musculoskeletal disorder. When coding claims for which the condition has developed and changed over time, always code the claim as it is NOW. Musculoskeletal System codes Mental Disorders codes Digestive System codes Skin and Subcutaneous Tissue codes Nervous and Sense Organs codes Respiratory System codes Circulatory System codes Infections and Parasites codes Neoplasm (Cancer) codes Other Diseases codes Unknown This is a temporary code, which must be reviewed as soon as possible.

13 CONDITIONS, DISEASES AND DISORDERS Diseases/conditions/disorders usually results from repeated or long-term exposure to an agent or event, for example, a musculoskeletal condition may develop through long term exposure to stressing of the body. Some conditions may be the result of a single traumatic event. For example, a worker robbed at gunpoint may develop a mental disorder, or a meat worker may suffer a single exposure to leptospirosis. An injury or poisoning may develop into a disease/condition/disorder. For example, a worker who suffers a poisoning may go on to suffer liver failure and a traumatic joint/ligament or muscle tendon injury may develop into a musculoskeletal disorder. When coding claims that have developed and changed over time always code the claim as it is NOW.
