All Victorian radiotherapy services report course data monthly to the Victorian Radiotherapy Minimum Data Set (VRMDS).
The dataset contains demographic, administrative and clinical data for admitted and non-admitted patients treated in Victorian radiotherapy facilities, in both the public and private sectors.
The department uses the data to inform service planning for radiotherapy facilities. It also assesses metrics associated with this, such as variations in radiotherapy utilisation rates across the state.
