Data Quality Statement - Specialist Outpatient Waiting Time Report

Information regarding hospital outpatient appointment waiting times has not previously been regularly reported by SA Health. SA Health has a number of patient administration systems that have different reporting capabilities for outpatient waiting list information.

At this time, the quality, accuracy and consistency of the outpatient data is a significant challenge for Local Health Networks and the Department for Health and Wellbeing.

SA Health recognises the importance of reporting accurate outpatient appointment waiting times and have dedicated resources to improve the accuracy of waiting list information.
