This page provides information for drug treatment agencies, state and territory health departments and those involved in collecting and transmitting data for the Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment Services National Minimum Data Set (AODTS NMDS).
See below for further information on agencies funded by the Non-government Organisation Treatment Grants Program (NGOTGP) and Primary Health Network (PHN).
The timetable for data submissions for the 2016–17 collection is below. Final submissions are due in November 2017.
This section provides information for agencies funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health under the NGOTGP and agencies commissioned for services delivered through the PHN Drug and Alcohol Treatment Program. These agencies are required to submit data to the Alcohol and Other Drug Treatment Services National Minimum Data Set (AODTS NMDS).
If you provide your state/territory government or contracted AOD organisation with your AODTS NMDS data, your agency is not required to submit data to the AIHW. However, please advise the AIHW of your data submission to your state/territory government via email to [email protected].
To reduce the burden of data collection and validation on PHNs, commissioned providers will report their specialist service data through existing AIHW data collection mechanisms. In cases where state and territory Governments are co-funders of a service, the data may be submitted to the AIHW via the state/territory health department or peak body depending on jurisdictional reporting requirements.
All other NGOTGP and PHN agencies funded by the Department of Health or Primary Health Networks are required to submit their data directly to the AIHW via email to [email protected].
All enquiries email [email protected].
We'd love to know any feedback that you have about the AIHW website, its contents or reports.
