Comments:Help on this term

Required to adequately describe the services provided to non-admitted patients.

Apart from acute hospitals, establishments generally provide a much more limited range of services for non-admitted patients and outreach/community patients/clients. Therefore disaggregation by type of episode is not as necessary as in acute hospitals.
