|Metadata item type:||Data Element Concept|
|Synonymous names:||Number of individual service events|
|Definition:||The number of individual session non-admitted patient service events provided by an establishment.|
Required to adequately describe the services provided to non-admitted patients.
The resources required to provide services to groups of patients are different from those required to provide services to an equivalent number of individuals. Hence services to groups of non-admitted patients or outreach clients should be counted separately from services to individuals.
