Allied Health Minimum Dataset
In December 2018, four Allied Health National Best Practice Allied Health Minimum Data Sets were included in METeOR, the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare’s repository for national metadata standards for the health, community services and housing assistance sectors. This represent a huge step in ensuring that that allied health data standards are recognised at a National level and utilised for important funding work such as that undertaken by the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority.
These data sets have been further developed by an allied health e-health collaborative and based on the Allied Health Minimum Dataset and Health Activity Hierarchy (HAH) 2001.
