Definition

Median waiting time for people who had urgent or semi-urgent surgery for malignant bowel, breast or lung cancer and who were on an elective surgery waiting list for that surgery.

Indicator Summary

Numerator

Median waiting times are calculated using hospital separations with:

  • ICD-10-AM (7th edn) principle diagnosis codes
    • Bowel cancer - C18, C19 and C20
    • Breast cancer - C50
    • Lung cancer - C34
  • ACHI (7th edn) procedure codes:
    • Bowel cancer: 3200000 3200001 3200300 3200301 3200400 3200401 3200500 3200501 3200600 3200601 3200900 3201200 3201500 3202400 3202500 3202600 3202800 3203000 3203900 3204700 3205100 3205101 3206000 3209900 3211200 9220800

  • Elective surgery waiting list episode- clinical urgency code:
    1. Admission within 30 days desirable for a condition that has the potential to deteriorate quickly to the point that it may become and emergency
    2. Admission within 90 days desirable for a condition causing some pain, dysfunction or disability but which is not likely to deteriorate quickly or become an emergency
  • Elective surgery waiting list episode—reason for removal from a waiting list:
    1. Admitted as an elective patient for awaited procedure by or on behalf of this hospital or the state/territory
    2. Admitted as emergency patient for awaited procedure by or on behalf of this hospital or the state/territory

Calculations exclude people who were on an elective surgery waiting list but were transferred to another hospital's elective surgery waiting list, were treated elsewhere but not on behalf of the hospital, were not contactable, died prior to receiving their surgery or declined surgery.
