The conference will be made up of four different types of sessions.
The PCSI conference 2016 offers participants the opportunity to engage with leading healthcare professionals to debate the latest developments and trends. The conference programme addresses the latest and most important issues in a variety of sessions such as plenaries, ‘big issue’ debates, parallel sessions, panel discussions and workshops

PCSI have conducted a number of panel sessions on Casemix topics at the more recent conferences and the general feedback has been positive. Further panel sessions will be organised as part of this conference.
The first day of the conference consist of a series of three-hour workshops where particular areas of Casemix are discussed.
- Social Programme
The social programme part of the conference is the most important part as it offers an informal opportunity for everyone to network. Booking is essential as space is limited.
Pre-conference workshops at PCSI conferences have always covered a broad range of topics, such as an introduction to casemix, patient costing, clinical coding and ways to use data for, for example, improved quality of care and health service management. This year a full day of workshops on 4 October will cover similar topics. Specific details of the workshops being offered can be downloaded here
