Guide for use:Help on this term

A non-admitted service which meets the criteria of a non-admitted patient service event should be counted only once, regardless of the number of health-care providers present.

An individual non-admitted patient service event is one where care was delivered to one patient by one or more health-care providers. For example:

  • A health-care provider working one on one with several different patients in the same space over the same period of time, but each patient is following their own personalised program (such as several patients scheduled to use the physiotherapy gym concurrently).
  • Multiple family members and a patient meeting with the health-care provider to discuss the one patient only.
Comments:Help on this term

Required to adequately describe the services provided to non-admitted patients.

The resources required to provide services to groups of patients are different from those required to provide services to an equivalent number of individuals. Hence services to groups of non-admitted patients or outreach clients should be counted separately from services to individuals.
