This Data Clearinghouse is an independent and central repository of national aged care data. You can access the data that is held in the Clearinghouse through the GEN aged care data website. Holdings are complex and include a relational database comprising more than 60 tables, most relating to aged care programs operating under the Aged Care Act 1997. The holdings include activity data for residential aged care programs, community-based aged care packages, Transition Care Program, Aged Care Assessment Program, Aged Care Funding Instrument, and Home and Community Care. They also include recipient details, payment subsidies and service (facility and provider) details. Data are refreshed annually (including full replacement of historical data) by the Department of Health with data sourced from the Department of Human Services payment systems, centralised client record systems and minimum datasets.
