Collection and Usage Attributes
Guide for Use
Facility attributes are individual pieces of information about a facility. For example, name of the facility, whether or not it has an intensive care neonatal unit, facility type, etc. Some attributes apply to all facilities (i.e. facility name, facility type) whilst others may or may not apply to a facility (e.g. licence related attributes only apply to licenced private hospitals).

Within the Corporate Reference Data System (CRDS) Facility data set an attribute may be captured by a flag, a code from a predetermined list or free text (for further information refer to individual data elements i.e. Facility-facility type).
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.
