Metadata Online Registry Tasmania (METeORiTe)

Welcome to METeORiTe, Tasmania's Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Metadata Online Registry – Tasmania.

The METeOR system (Metadata Online Registry) was developed by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) to store national metadata standards. With collaboration between AIHW and DHHS, METeOR has been expanded to allow for state/territory specific metadata to be stored within a single registry.

METeORiTe is DHHS's repository for state metadata standards for the hospital sector.

Through METeORiTe you can find, view and download data standards. Using these standards will help comparability across different data collections.

This page has been created as part of developing the documentation of standard data definitions and related metadata within the Department of Health and Human Services Tasmania metadata repository. These specifications have been agreed by the METeORiTe Data Standards Review Committee (MDSRC) within the Department of Health and Human Services Tasmania and can be accessed via the following METeOR links:

  • Operating suite usage DSS
  • Tasmanian emergency department DSS
  • Waiting list DSS
