Non-admitted patients are patients who do not undergo a hospital’s formal admission process and do not occupy a hospital bed. Instead, they receive services as an outpatient. The types of care they receive include consultations with specialist medical practitioners, the provision of diagnostic or other procedures, and allied health or clinical nurse specialist services.
National data on services provided to non-admitted patients in Australia outlines information on the types of services provided, the types of clinics in which the services take place, the users of services and the funding of services.
