|DSS type:||Data Set Specification (DSS)|
The scope of the Allied health non-admitted patient emergency department national best practice data set (AHNAPED NBPDS) is to collect information on emergency department stays which include allied health service events in public hospitals where the emergency department meets the following criteria:
The AHNAPED NBPDS uses many of the data elements from the Non-admitted patient emergency department care National Minimum Data Set (NAPEDC NMDS), but is considered a standalone NBPDS as it collects information on allied health service events which occur during an emergency department stay.
All allied health services delivered in emergency departments are in scope for this data set.
The scope includes physical presentations to emergency departments and other advice provided by telephone, videoconferencing or telehealth as this would be considered to be part of the suite of interventions which form part of allied health service provision in this area.
The care provided to patients in emergency departments is, in most instances, recognised as being provided to non-admitted patients. Patients being treated in emergency departments may subsequently become admitted (including admission in the emergency department, admission to another hospital ward, including a short stay unit, or admission to hospital-in-the-home). All allied health service events for patients remain in-scope for this collection until they are recorded as having physically departed the emergency department, regardless of whether they have been admitted.
Patients who leave the emergency department after being registered to receive care but have received an allied health service remain in scope for this collection.
Excluded from the scope of the NMDS is care provided to patients in General Practitioner co-located units. Patients who are dead on arrival are considered to be out of scope for this NBPDS.
