Data element attributes
Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
Each patient attending a group session is counted as a non-admitted patient service event, providing that the session included the provision of therapeutic/clinical advice for each patient and that this was recorded using a dated entry in each patient's medical record.
Family members are only counted as attending a group session if they are participating in the non-admitted patient service event as a patient in their own right.
Each patient attending a group session is counted as one non-admitted patient service event, regardless of the number of health care providers present.
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 should be counted separately from services to individuals.
