Guide for use:Help on this term

In the absence of nationally consistent code sets or values for recording clinical finding ‘free text’ may be used, with the future intention of mapping to and use of an established terminology.  

Clinical findings may be recorded for all allied health service events performed by an allied health service provider.

There may be some professions that do not record a clinical finding.

Each allied health service event may have one or more than one clinical findings recorded, up to a maximum of ninety nine (99). Where code set values are used this field should record the code as well as the meaning of the code as text.

Collection methods:Help on this term

Each jurisdiction will implement a locally agreed codeset for collection of the data element. This may be borrowed or adapted from another jurisdiction.

Clinical findings code sets may be profession specific or shared amongst a number of professions. An allied health service provider may use a profession specific code set for this data element.

Comments:Help on this term

Subsequent analysis of locally agreed values will contribute to developing national standardised values in the future.
