Computation description:Help on this term

Count of regular clients who are Indigenous, aged 15 years and over and who have had their alcohol consumption status recorded at the primary health care service within the previous 24 months.

‘Regular client’ refers to a client of an OATSIH-funded primary health care service (that is required to report against the Indigenous primary health care key performance indicators) who has an active medical record; that is, a client who has attended the OATSIH-funded primary health care service at least 3 times in 2 years.

Alcohol consumption status has been recorded if the health service has either:

a) A record of whether the client consumes alcohol or;

b) A record specifying the amount and frequency of the client's alcohol consumption

Results arising from measurements conducted outside of the service, that are known by the service, are included in the calculation of this indicator.

Presented as a number.
