Collection and usage attributes
The agency should record the type of goods or equipment received by the client (on loan or by purchase) on each Community service episode. This information can then be amalgamated to provide a measure of the types and number of goods and equipment received by a client over a reporting period (which will vary according to collection requirements).
Where the client receives more than one of the same type of good or equipment (e.g. several food packets) on the same occasion, the agency should only record this once. Where the client receives different types of goods or equipment on the same occasion, the agency should separately record each type of goods or equipment against the same date.
Where greater detail in the Value domain is required refer to HACC Data Dictionary Version 1.0, Appendix B: Code list for Goods and Equipment. 1998.
