This data element is currently under development in the NAPAAWL DC.

 

It is a mandatory item for national reporting against the data element:

Non-admitted patient service event—multiple health care provider indicator, yes/no/not stated/inadequately described code N

 

Collection methods:Help on this term

The multiple health care provider indicator will be assigned a value of 1 (Yes) for a non-admitted patient service event in the instance where a patient receives care at a multidisciplinary clinic.

A multidisciplinary clinic is defined in WA as a clinic where care is provided on the same day by three or more health care providers who collaborate together to assess and make treatment recommendations that facilitate quality patient care.

The multidisciplinary approach aims to address treatment that is focused on all aspects of the needs of the person - including but not limited to physical and psychosocial.

As a patient's needs may change with time, the composition of the team may also change to meet these needs.

The health care providers in a multidisciplinary clinic may be from the same type of profession (medical, nursing or allied health); however they must each have a different specialty or discipline so that the care the patient receives from each provider is unique and meets the definition of a non-admitted patient service event.
