Guide for use:Help on this term

Each separately administered health care establishment is to have a unique identifier at the national level.

Concatenation of:

Australian state/territory identifier (character position 1);

Sector (character position 2);

Region identifier (character positions 3-4); and

Organisation identifier (state/territory) (character positions 5-9), or Specialised mental health service organisation - organisation identifier (character positions 5-9). Specialised mental health service organisation identifiers should be prefaced with a 0.

Where services are provided by non-government organisations contracted through a jurisdictional health department, the identifier should be reported as the state/territory identifier for the jurisdictional health department, and blank filled with the character 7 (e.g. 477777777 SA Health department, contracting non-government organisation services).

Comments:Help on this term

Establishment identifier should be able to distinguish between all health care establishments nationally. This data element differs from the previous data element Establishment—organisation identifier (Australian), NNX[X]NNNNN in that the Specialised mental health service organisation—organisation identifier, XXXX are now included in the concatenation.
