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.  

The assessment type should indicate the type of activities that evaluate the health of the person receiving the allied health service event and contribute to clinical reasoning to identify allied health indicators for intervention or clinical findings, for example musculoskeletal, behavioural, psychosocial, neurological.

Assessment types are recorded for all allied health service events performed by an allied health service provider working within the professions identified in Allied health service event—provider profession, code AA[AAA]

A combination of assessment types, measures and results fields represent a discrete assessment. Each allied health service event may have one or more assessment types, measures and results recorded, up to a maximum of 99.

Collection methods:Help on this term

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

Assessment types may be profession specific or shared amongst professions. An allied health service provider may use a profession specific code 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.
