Collection and Usage Attributes
This value is populated using the Maternity Care Classification System (MaCCS) and is the value of the unique model of care code.

The model of care a female received for the majority of pregnancy care, as determined by the number of antenatal visits within that model of care.

Where the number of antenatal visits is equal for more than one model of care, the referring model of care should be selected. For example, if a female was in a low-risk GP shared care model for 6 antenatal visits and then developed hypertension and pre-eclampsia and was referred to a high-risk model for 6 antenatal visits, the GP shared care should be selected for this data element.
Queensland Perinatal Data Collection (QPDC):
Must not be null if Pregnancy-antenatal care indicator is code 2 Yes.
To be collected once, after the birth.
