Clinical activities are those which provide a service to an individual, group or community to influence health status. Non-Individual Patient Attributable (NIPA) activities are any clinical activities that cannot be assigned to an individual patient. These activities may include, but are not limited to:

  • any profession defined intervention which cannot be directly related to a specific patient.
  • any other intervention which cannot be directly related to a specific patient (except travel);
  • any travel activity associated with clinical care which cannot be directly related to a specific patient.

Allied health NIPA care should be recorded for each NIPA event that the allied health provider performs. For example, if three separate NIPA events are performed, three separate NIPA activities should be recorded. All NIPA events must indicate if it was a group session using Service contact—group session status, yes/no/not  stated/inadequately described code N.
