Collection Methods
Queensland Hospital Admitted Patient Data Collection:
The QAS patient event identifier can be used to uniquely link patient episodes in the admitted and non-admitted emergency patient record to patient events in extracts of QAS clinical data.
Comment
The eARF number is a unique identifier for patient events attended by the QAS.  Each QAS team has a portable tablet PC that they use to record clinical details about each patient attended.  Each tablet PC is allocated a unique set of eARF numbers and when a new patient template is opened on the PC an eARF number is automatically allocated to the patient.   
It should be noted that the number is only unique to a patient event not a person.  That is, a person receives a new eARF number each time they are attended to/transported by QAS.  If more than one QAS team attend a patient, all clinical details are transferred to the PC of the team who transports the patient so each patient is allocated only one eARF number per patient event.   
The eARF number is included on the form that the QAS transporting team print out and leave at the hospital when they deliver a patient.
This item is used to improve the monitoring of costs and outcomes in QAS patients overall and for specific investigations of other subgroups of patients.
