Guide for use:Help on this term

The rules for calculating the number of hospital-in-the-home days are outlined below:

  • The number of hospital-in-the-home days is calculated with reference to the date of admission, date of separation, leave days and any date(s) of change between hospital and home accommodation;
  • The date of admission is counted if the patient was at home at the end of the day;
  • The date of change between hospital and home accommodation is counted if the patient was at home at the end of the day;
  • The date of separation is not counted, even if the patient was at home at the end of the day;
  • The normal rules for calculation of patient days apply, for example in relation to leave and same day patients.
Comments:Help on this term

Number of days of hospital-in-the-home care data will be collected from all states and territories except Western Australia from 1 July 2001. Western Australia will begin to collect data from a later date.
