The scope of this DSS is emergency services provided in activity based funded hospitals which do not meet any of the following criteria:
The care provided to patients in emergency services/urgent care centres is, in most instances, recognised as being provided to non-admitted patients. Patients being treated in emergency services/urgent care centres may subsequently become admitted. All patients remain in-scope for this collection until they are recorded as having physically departed the emergency service/urgent care centre, regardless of whether they have been admitted. For this reason there is an overlap in the scope of this DSS and the Admitted patient care national minimum data set (APC NMDS).
The scope also includes services where patient did not wait or died on arrival. Patients with Department of Veterans' Affairs or compensable funding source are also included in the scope of the collection.
Excluded from the scope are:
