NOCC Volume and Completeness Reports

These reports are provided to inform discussions regarding the overall volume of NOCC data and the completeness of these data to enable meaningful analyses. This report presents findings from analyses of National Outcomes and Casemix Collection data as submitted by Jurisdictions for the past 4 years i.e. 2011/12 - 2014/15. These analyses are based on the most recent submissions by Jurisdictions as at 6 March 2016.

The reports available are:

NOCC Data Volume and Completeness: National & State/Territory: Children and Adolescents

NOCC Data Volume and Completeness: National & State/Territory: Adults

NOCC Data Volume and Completeness: National & State/Territory: Older Persons

The NOCC protocol prescribes measures to be collected specific to the age group of consumers, at times specific to the service setting and at other times specific to the reason for collection. These reports are based on that protocol but acknowledge that organisations and jurisdictions may have different requirements. At each point in the collection protocol, analyses are presented as charts from two perspectives:

  1. the overall volume of information reported; and
  2. the ‘completeness’ of that material for the purposes of analysis and reporting.

Findings are reported for each of the past 4 years to enable an assessment of trends in reporting over time. Figures are numbered with the schema used for the standard reports with modification such that the suffix ‘V’ refers to 'volume' and the suffix ‘C’ refers to ‘completeness’.

These reports should also be considered in conjunction with the following:
