Context:Help on this term

The development of the Australian National Sub-acute and Non-acute Patient classification (AN-SNAP) has created a descriptive framework for studying sub-acute care hospitalisation. AN-SNAP provides a summary of the type and complexity of sub-acute patients a hospital treats. As a framework for describing the products of a hospital (that is, patients receiving services), AN-SNAP allows meaningful comparison of hospitals' efficiency and effectiveness under alternative systems of health care provision.
