Definition:The number of individual session non-admitted patient service events provided by an establishment.
Context:

The resources required to provide services to groups of patients are different from those required to provide services to an equivalent number of individuals. Hence services to groups of non-admitted patients or outreach clients should be counted separately from services to individuals.
