The end date of each SNAP episode in a designated SNAP (Sub and Non-Acute Patient) unit.
The Australian National Sub and Non-Acute Patient (AN-SNAP) Classification System is being implemented in Queensland public hospitals to better inform service planning, purchasing, and clinical management. Currently sub and non-acute patient (SNAP) details are collected only for those patients in designated SNAP units.

The scope of this collection includes all admitted patient episodes where the patient's episode type is not acute, newborn, boarder, organ procurement or other care, and the ward (either at admission to the episode or through a ward transfer during the episode) is assigned to a designated SNAP unit.

A new item, standard ward code, is to be assigned a value of 'SNAP' for those wards which are assigned to a designated SNAP unit. Patients should have SNAP details reported for each sub and non-acute care type (SNAP episode) within an episode of care.
