Statistical Services Branch (SSB) maintains a central repository, the Corporate Reference Data System (CRDS), which holds commonly used corporate reference data, including facility data, for use in Queensland Health data collections and system applications. The facilities are uniquely identified by a five-digit numeric code and include properties such as hospital and health service, operational dates, address details and a number of attributes (e.g. facility name, facility type, peer group, etc).
Common facility reference data can be viewed and extracted via the Queensland Health Electronic Publishing Service (QHEPS) <INTERNAL QH LINK NOT AVAILABLE>. Other facility reference data, including history, is available upon request to the CRDS Administrator.
