National Health Data CommitteeComments:
In the current data element, the term establishment is used in a very broad sense to mean bases, whether institutions, organisations or the community from which health services are provided. Thus, the term covers conventional health establishments and also organisations which may provide services in the community.
This metadata item is currently under review by the Establishments Framework Working Group of the Health Data Standards Committee. Recommendations will provide a comprehensive coverage of the health service delivery sector.
