The scope of the Allied health non-admitted patient National best practice data set (AHNAP NBPDS) is to collect information on the provision of allied health service events to non-admitted patients in the public sector.
The AHNAP NBPDS uses many of the data elements from the Non-admitted patient National best endeavours data set (NAP NBEDS) but is considered a standalone NBPDS as it relates specifically to allied health services.
The scope includes the provision of allied health service events to non- admitted patients provided by:
This also includes all in-scope services contracted by a public hospital, Local Hospital Network or jurisdiction regardless of the physical location of the contracting public hospital, Local Hospital Network or jurisdiction, or the location where the services are delivered.
The AHNAP NBPDS is intended to capture instances of allied health service provision from the point of view of the patient.
The scope of the AHNAP NBPDS includes all arrangements made to deliver non-admitted patient service events (not covered by the national minimum data sets listed below) to non-admitted patients:
Excluded from the scope of the NBPDS are all services covered by:
For the purpose of this NBPDS, a non-admitted service is a specialty unit or organisational arrangement under which a jurisdictional health authority, Local Hospital Network or public hospital provides non-admitted services.
Local Hospital Networks are defined as those entities recognised as such by the relevant state or territory health authority.

Non-admitted patient service event as a proxy for an Allied health service event
|Guide for use:|
The AHAPC NBPDS guides the standardisation of allied health data.
In the absence of a national definition of an episode of care for a non-admitted patient, this allied health data set specification is using the non-admitted patient service event statistical unit, where those non-admitted patient service events which are allied health services are in scope and have additional data elements to define health care.
Data can be collected by each jurisdiction though patient administration and other allied health clinical and activity reporting systems where applicable.
Jurisdictions are responsible for the collation of data at regular intervals to inform service provision.
It is anticipated that the AHNAP NBPDS guides the standardisation of allied health data with the future intention of developing a national minimum data set or inclusion within other national minimum data sets.
