Hospital Based Corporate Information System (HBCIS):
Currently HBCIS will not accept 0000 as midnight. A system parameter setting at each site dictates if 2400 can be a valid entry. If an actual event occurs at midnight and the parameter is set to 'Y' then record 2400. If an actual event occurs at midnight and the parameter is set to 'N' record 23:59.
Queensland Hospital Admitted Patient Data Collection (QHAPDC):
Statistical Services Branch (SSB) will accept a time of 24:00 for the QHAPDC if that is when an event actually occurs. The time of 24:00 will then be converted when the record is loaded onto the SSB processing system. Hospitals should note that if this value is submitted, a H848 validation (A time value of 2400 has been reported for | Please confirm if the reported value should be | 23:59 or | 00:00.) will generate and display on EVAPlus. Hospitals will then need to confirm with SSB the correct time.
