Collection and Usage Attributes
This metadata item provides a consistent framework for counting non-admitted patient service events for costing and funding purposes.
The code set is based on the list and definitions outlined in the document: Tier 2 Non-Admitted Services Definitions Manual (version 3.0), Independent Hospital Pricing Authority, http://www.ihpa.gov.au/internet/ihpa/publishing.nsf/Content/non-admitted-care.
The Tier 2 classification is grouped into four categories reflecting the service providers and the type of activity primarily associated with each clinic, as these elements are the major factors in the differentiation in the costs of providing a service. Refer to the element Non-admitted patient service event-non-admitted service category (Tier 2 v3.0) data element for further information on the categories. A rehabilitation clinic, for example, could map to Tier 2 clinic 20.47 (Rehabilitation) to capture services provided by a Rehabilitation Medicine Specialist, or to Tier 2 clinic 40.12 (Rehabilitation) to capture services provided at a clinic attended by a Clinical Nurse Specialist or an Allied Health professional.
