Dementia imposes a significant challenge for healthcare sys- tems, and can be under-coded in hospital patients. A review of coding in an Australian setting identified deficiencies which could impact on funding for dementia care, and for research. Further work is needed to clarify the impact of coding on de- cisions about funding for dementia care and research.
