Systems evaluations and data

High quality information is important to the effective management of the mental health and alcohol and other drug sectors.

The Information Development team at the Commission manage the collection of data, including the following systems:

  • Contract Acquittal Data Collection (CADC)
  • Mental Health Establishments National Minimum Data Set (MHE NMDS)
  • Service Information Management System (SIMS)

These systems provide data for contract acquittal and/or national reporting requirements. The aim for each system is to:

  • Improve consistency and quality of data;
  • Consolidate data reporting procedures (where possible) to reduce the burden;
  • Streamline the reporting process; and
  • Meet contract and national reporting requirements.

These systems will routinely be evaluated to assist the Information Development team to determine:

  • how well the systems are meeting the end user needs; and
  • future directions for any developments.

The following reports relate to system evaluations and data and are aimed at keeping agencies abreast of the information development initiatives:
