Scope:Help on this term

The Office for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (OATSIH) Services Reporting (OSR) data set specification (DSS) describes service level information from primary health care, standalone substance use and Bringing Them Home and Link Up counselling service providers that received funding from OATSIH for the period 2011–12.

The scope of the OSR aggregate-level data collection is the services, programs and activities undertaken by the service providers; including the number of clients, episodes of care, and client contacts. The data is used to inform Indigenous health policy, and program development and implementation.

The OSR DSS contains four component data set specifications:

OATSIH services reporting (OSR) details DSS

The OATSIH services reporting (OSR) details DSS is collected by all OATSIH funded services. It describes administrative details, information about accreditation, information technology use and service provider governance.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander primary health-care services DSS

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander primary health-care services DSS describes information from primary health care services that received funding from the Australian Government through OATSIH.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander standalone substance use services DSS

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander standalone substance use services DSS describes the provision of treatment and assistance for a range of substance use issues by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander standalone substance use services.

Bringing them Home/Link Up Counsellors DSS 

The Bringing them Home/Link Up Counsellors DSS describes the counselling services funded by OATSIH to provide counselling to individuals, families and communities affected by past practices regarding the forced removal of children from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families.

Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:Help on this term

The OATSIH Services Reporting (OSR) details DSS is applicable to all OATSIH-funded health-care services. The type of funding that the service receives from OATSIH determines which of the other data set specifications are relevant.

Many of these services also receive funds from other sources (for example, state or territory governments, or Medicare Benefits Schedule). The data in the OSR collection relate to service staffing and health care delivery from all funding sources.
