Queensland Hospital Admitted Patient Data Collection (QHAPDC):
The patient identifier or unit record number of the mother should be recorded for all newborns with a source of referral/transfer of 09 (Born in hospital).
The mother's patient identifier must be transmitted as an 8 character string, right adjusted and zero filled from the left where necessary. For example, a patient number of '68259' should be recorded as '00068259'.
Hospital Based Corporate Information System (HBCIS):
For some HBCIS Hospitals, the patient identifier is allocated automatically, or may be obtained from the unit record register and entered manually. If the patient already has an allocated identifier, search the patient master index and select the correct number. If the number is known, record the exact number. No leading zeros or filler digits are required as these will be inserted automatically during extraction.
