Identifying and definitional attributes
|Metadata item type:||Data Set Specification|
|DSS type:||Data Element Cluster|
The scope of the Public hospital establishments (PHE) data element cluster is establishment-level data for public acute and psychiatric hospitals, and alcohol and drug treatment centres. All activity, recurrent expenditure and related revenue in the public hospital's General Ledger are in scope, regardless of whether all components are a 'public hospital service' under the National Health Reform Agreement (2011).
Similar data for private hospitals and free-standing day hospital facilities are collected by the Australian Bureau of Statistics in the Private Health Establishments Collection.
Hospitals specialising in dental, ophthalmic aids and other specialised acute medical or surgical care are included. Hospitals operated by the Australian Defence Force, corrections authorities and Australia's external territories are not currently included.
