Scope:Help on this term

The Healthcare provider qualification and registration cluster contains data elements that define the additional information needed to represent a healthcare provider. This includes information about the provider's professional registration, field(s) of practice, any practice limitations and practice details.

This cluster supports the identification of individual healthcare providers in healthcare systems generally, but also supports professional registration. The data elements within the cluster are contained in the practitioners' public register and form part of the unique identification of individual healthcare providers.

This cluster is not intended to be the basis for collecting exhaustive details of registered qualifications or experience.
