Australian state/territory identifier (character position 1);
Sector (character position 2);
Region identifier (character positions 3-4); and
Organisation identifier (state/territory) (character positions 5-9), or Specialised mental health service organisation - organisation identifier (character positions 5-9). Specialised mental health service organisation identifiers should be prefaced with a 0.
Where services are provided by non-government organisations contracted through a jurisdictional health department, the identifier should be reported as the state/territory identifier for the jurisdictional health department, and blank filled with the character 7 (e.g. 477777777 SA Health department, contracting non-government organisation services).

This data element differs from the previous data element Establishment—organisation identifier (Australian), NNX[X]NNNNN in that the Specialised mental health service organisation—organisation identifier, XXXX are now included in the concatenation.
