Comments:Help on this term

Desirable components of a unique agency identifier include Australian State/Territory identifier, Establishment sector, and Agency number.

Currently, there is no uniform method throughout community services for the identification of agencies. However, adoption of consistent practices for allocating unique agency identifiers has the potential to enhance data comparability and utility.

It is important to note that if agencies are to communicate confidentially between one another, a unique agency identity needs to be established. The use of this metadata item will lead to reduced duplication in reporting client activity and will enable linkage of services to one episode of care or service event.
