Further data development / collection required:Help on this termSpecification: Long-term
Further improvement in the rate of Voluntary Indigenous Identification with Medicare Australia (MBS item) is needed.
Other issues caveats:Help on this termDisaggregation within individual jurisdictions are subject to data quality considerations. Currently the National Diabetes Service Scheme (NDSS) database does not have good coverage of Indigenous people with diabetes or people with diabetes in regional or remote areas.

Note that only GPs are able to make an MBS claim for the annual cycle of care item, so people with diabetes who have an annual cycle of care exclusively within specialist diabetes clinics or through an endocrinologist will not be captured by the MBS items.

These data issues affect the coverage of the numerator to this indicator as the number of claims underestimates the actual number of diabetes annual cycles of care completed.
