ANNOUNCEMENT

TERMINOLOGY CHANGES — RESIDENTIAL CARE (AUSTRALIA)

As at 1 July 2014 the Australian Government changed the definition of residential care resulting in “low level care” and “high level care” no longer being current terminology (more details). The AROC V4 Dataset for Australia and the Australian Data Collection Forms for pathways 2, 3, 4 & 5 still have this concept in the data items “Type of Accommodation prior to the impairment”, “Interim Accommodation post discharge” and “Final Accommodation post discharge”. The ramifications of this definitional change was discussed by the AROC Scientific Clinical Advisory Committee. It was agreed that whilst AROC can’t change the V4 code set for the three affected data items mid-stream, we can introduce a new business rule that takes account of this definitional change.

New business rule for Australian facilities: All episodes admitted from or discharged to residential care from July 2014 are to be coded to residential high level care (nursing home).

NOTE: all future analyses on Australian admissions from / discharges to residential care will combine residential low level care (hostel) and residential high level care (nursing home). When the AROC V4 dataset is revised the Accommodation data items affected by this definitional change will be adjusted to include codes identifying the 4 levels of care packages at home now available, as well as residential aged care and a code identifying referral to NDIS.
