Development of nationally consistent subacute and non-acute admitted patient care data definitions and guidelines – AIHW – 2 May 2013

“In August 2012, the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority engaged the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare to develop nationally consistent definitions and business rules for subacute and non-acute admitted patient care and care types for implementation in national hospital datasets. The data element for ‘care type’ was revised to include a definition of subacute care. It also clarified that subacute care: is delivered under the management of or informed by a clinician with specialised expertise in the care type; be evidenced by an individualised multidisciplinary management plan that is documented in the patient’s medical record; and reflect both the characteristics of the patient and the expertise of the treating clinician.”
