Scope:Help on this term

The Admitted subacute and non-acute hospital care national best endeavours data set (ASNAHC NBEDS) aims to ensure national consistency in relation to defining and collecting information about care provided to subacute and non-acute admitted public and private patients in activity based funded public hospitals.

Subacute care in this NBEDS is identified as admitted episodes in rehabilitation care, palliative care, geriatric evaluation and management care and psychogeriatric care.

Non-acute care in this NBEDS is identified as admitted episodes of maintenance care.

The scope of the NBEDS is:

  • same-day and overnight admitted subacute and non-acute care episodes
  • admitted public patients provided on a contracted basis by private hospitals
  • admitted patients in rehabilitation care, palliative care, geriatric evaluation and management, psychogeriatric care and maintenance care treated in the hospital-in-the-home.

Excluded from the scope are:

  • hospitals operated by the Australian Defence Force, correctional authorities and Australia's external territories.
