The scope of the Non-Admitted Patient Activity and Waitlist Data Collection (NAPAAWL DC) comprises all non-admitted outpatient services in Western Australia (WA). This includes those provided at public hospitals, together with publicly-funded non-admitted outpatient services that are provided at private hospitals such as Joondalup Health Campus and Peel Health Campus, and through the Department of Health Western Australia.
The NAPAAWL DC includes patient-level non-admitted activity data from the following core systems:
Although the Allied Health System (AHS) is a corporately managed system that provides patient-level non-admitted activity to the NAPAAWL DC, it does not meet the required reporting standard and therefore is not classified as a core system.
The addition of non-admitted outpatient data to the NAPAAWL DC from satellite systems now includes data from several systems and more are in testing.
Collection and usage attributes
Each site provides a data extract from their own information system for inclusion in the NAPAAWL DC.
Several hospitals use more than one of the core systems listed above.
The data items contained in the source extracts may be:
The NAPAAWL DC gathers all activity information at both the referral and the appointment level and uses this to ascertain non-admitted patient waiting times and service events.
