Data source attributes

|Further data development / collection required:|
Specification: Long-term.Work is required to improve the identification of Indigenous Australians within this data.
|Other issues caveats:|
Disaggregation within individual jurisdictions is subject to data quality considerations. Some disaggregations may result in numbers too small for publication.
This indicator provides an indication of the extent to which patients are being provided with particular interventions. It reflects the quality of non-hospital care, access to hospitalisation and access to interventions for those patients who are hospitalised.
Procedures listed are ‘selected procedures’ in chapter 4 of Australian Hospital Statistics and additional indicator procedures from the Elective Surgery Waiting Times National Minimum Data Set (NMDS). The ‘selected procedures’ have been identified as relating to appropriateness and may also be indicators of accessibility of care. There is capacity for this list to be revised in future as surgical practice and/or policy focus changes.The quality of data on Indigenous status is not considered to be adequate for analysis purposes for the ACT and Tasmania.
