Purpose
To collect patient-level non-admitted outpatient activity (service events) reported by the various reporting entities of the three different levels of Queensland's public hospital system, the hospital, the Hospital and Health Service, and the State.
Scope
Non-admitted outpatient service events, primary and community health service events and occasions of service involving non-admitted patients provided by:
- public healthcare facilities (including hospitals, community health care centres, primary health care centres, and outpatient clinics)
- Hospital and Health Services
- other public hospital services that are managed by the State.

This also includes services contracted by a public healthcare facility, Hospital and Health Service or State regardless of the physical location of the contracting public healthcare facility, Hospital and Health Service or State, or the location where the services are delivered.

Instances of service provision are from the point of view of the non-admitted outpatient and include all arrangements made to deliver non-admitted patient service events to non-admitted patients:
- irrespective of location (includes on-campus and off-campus)
- regardless of setting or mode
- be inclusive of multiple non-admitted patient service events provided to a patient in one day, provided that every visit meets each of the criteria in the definition of a non-admitted patient service event. 
- be inclusive of services provided to patients in the admitted, emergency department or emergency service care settings 
- whose treatment has been funded through the State, Hospital and Health Services or public healthcare facilities, regardless of the source from which the entity derives these funds. In particular, Department of Veterans' Affairs, compensable and other patients funded through the entity (including Medicare ineligible patients) are included.

Excludes:
- services for which activity is reported via service specific information systems such as mental health and oral health service activity.
