Department of Health

The Department of Health (the department) has developed the Victorian Integrated Non-Admitted Health minimum data set (VINAH MDS) to meet reporting requirements for non-admitted activity at patient level. The VINAH MDS is a comprehensive data set that provides robust information for national reporting, information for funding and costing of non-admitted services, as well as providing data for service planning and program development.

In a limited number of circumstances reporting the VINAH MDS may not be possible for some health services. The Non-Admitted Data Collection (NADC) is a minimum data set that has been developed with a flat file reporting system to collect a limited number of data items in a limited number of circumstances.

The Criteria for use of the Non-Admitted Data Collection provides guidance on the circumstances where reporting NADC may be approved and the process to request approval to report this collection.
