The Victorian Admitted Episodes Dataset (VAED) provides a comprehensive dataset of the causes, effects and nature of illness, and the use of health services in Victoria. The VAED supports health service planning, policy formulation, epidemiological research and public hospital funding under the casemix system.
All Victorian public and private hospitals, including rehabilitation centres, extended care facilities and day procedure centres, report a minimum set of data for each admitted patient episode.
The VAED manual specifies data items, reporting guidelines, file format and validations for reporting to the VAED.
The VAED manual contains comprehensive information for hospitals on:
- data definitions for the data elements reported to the Victorian Admitted Dataset
- reporting requirements.
