|Quality statement summary:|
Approved providers of residential and community care submit data to Medicare Australia to claim subsidies from the Australian Government. This data is provided to DoHA to administer services under the Aged Care Act 1997 and the Aged Care Principles.
The data quality statement was developed by the Department of Health and Ageing and includes comments from the AIHW. The AIHW did not have all of the relevant datasets required to independently verify the data tables for this indicator. For further information see the AIHW website.
|Timeliness:||Claims are submitted by approved providers on a monthly basis for services delivered under residential aged care, CACP, EACH and EACHD. Data for the current reporting period is available in October each year.|
|Accessibility:||Information on definitions used in the indicators is available in the Aged Care Act 1997 and Aged Care Principles, in the Residential Aged Care Manual 2009 and draft Community Packaged Care Guidelines 2007.|
|Interpretability:||Aggregated data can be obtained on request from the Department of Health and Ageing and from AIHW’s Younger People with Disability in Residential Aged Care Program report.|
|Relevance:||The data provide complete coverage of aged care services funded by the Australian Government under the programs identified above.|
No issues, other than a client may be counted more than once as they may have had multiple care types, or care across multiple states, during the 12 months period.
Australian total is not necessarily the sum of its components.
|Coherence:||The data items used to construct this indicator are consistent and comparable over time.|
