|DSS type:||Data Set Specification (DSS)|
The purpose of the Hospital teaching and training activities DSS is to collect information about teaching and training activities, funded by the states and territories, that are associated with Australian public hospitals.
It is intended that the DSS will capture those activities that are unique to hospital delivery and thus activities that set hospitals apart in terms of cost.
The scope of the DSS is establishment level data on teaching and training activities which occur in activity based funded hospitals.
It is anticipated that additional data elements pertaining to research data will be added to the DSS in future years. Research data will not be collected in the first year of the DSS's implementation as a data standard.
Collection and usage attributes
|Statistical unit:||Public hospital establishments|
Data are collected at each hospital from patient administrative, financial and other systems. Hospitals forward data to the relevant state or territory health authority on a regular basis (for example, monthly).
Professional entry student clinical placement hours data are collected from higher education providers by Health Workforce Australia using a survey method. Prevocational and vocational medical graduate data are also compiled by Health Workforce Australia.
National reporting arrangements
State and territory health authorities provide the data to the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority for national collation, on an annual basis.
State and territory health authorities may source professional entry student clinical placement hours data from Health Workforce Australia to meet the requirements of this DSS.
Periods for which data are collected and nationally collated
Financial years ending 30 June each year.
Where students undertake training across financial years, activity should be attributed to the applicable financial year. The principle should be applied that no activity is to be double-counted or included in multiple financial years.
