Scope:Help on this term

The scope of the State or territory health authority data element cluster is all public hospital services that are managed by a state or territory health authority and are included in the General List of In-scope Public Hospital Services, which has been developed under the National Health Reform Agreement (2011) (NHRA).

Excluded from the scope are data reported to the Public hospital establishments (PHE) and Local Hospital Networks (LHN) data element clusters.

Collection and usage attributes

Statistical unit:Help on this term

State or territory health authority.

For the purposes of this data element cluster, the term 'establishment' refers to state and territory health authorities.

Guide for use:Help on this term

The following are principles of the collection. States and territories should consider these principles when providing data.

  1. Data should be reported by states and territories at the level relevant to service management and/or provision.
  2. This data element cluster should capture and differentiate between in-scope and out-of-scope of the NHRA.
  3. This data element cluster must specify where data elements are reporting actual data and where they are reporting estimated data.
  4. Where possible, this data element cluster should align so that it acts as a subset of the Government health expenditure NMDS.
  5. Reporting on expenditure and activity delivered under contract requires less detail than other expenditure and activity.

Actual recurrent expenditure and related revenue data are expected to be reported at the level at which they appear in the general ledger. Expenditure and revenue data are not expected to be apportioned to a lower level.

Recurrent expenditure and related revenue data reported to the State or territory health authority data element cluster should reconcile with published financial statements.

Expenditure data are reported in two ways:

The total recurrent expenditure by product stream should equal the total recurrent expenditure by general ledger line item.

For the purposes of the State or territory health authority data element cluster, funding from the Australian Government, state and territory health authorities and other state and territory government departments is considered to be revenue and should be reported as such.

Collection methods:Help on this term

Data for this data element cluster are sourced from the state or territory health authority general ledger.

National reporting arrangements

State and territory health authorities provide the data to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare for national collation, on an annual basis.

Periods for which data are collected and nationally collated

Financial years ending 30 June each year.

Interaction with the Public hospital establishments and Local Hospital Networks data element clusters

The PHE, LHN and State or territory health authority data element clusters work together to collect data on the public hospital system. The three data element clusters collect the same types of expenditure and revenue data items, but at different levels of the system:

 

Hierarchical level Data collected through
Public hospital establishments PHE component
Local Hospital Network LHN component
State or territory health authority State or territory component

It is expected that recurrent expenditure and related revenue data will be reported at the level at which they occur.

For services managed by a state or territory health authority, only those services considered to be 'public hospital services' under the NHRA are in-scope.

Scope links with Health NMDSs

The State or territory health authority data element cluster shares scope with the Government health expenditure NMDS.
