Refer to the recent Department announcement on the INFORMATION and ACTION: PHN CEO - Primary Mental Health Care Minimum Data Set Update | June 21, 2017. Suggesting changes

In late 2018, the Department of Health reinstated the Primary Mental Health Care Data Reference Group (PMHCDRG) to assist them with reviewing and prioritising future PMHC MDS changes.

The PMHC Helpdesk often receives suggestions for changes to the current PMHC MDS specifications and/or functionality, however, the Department would like all suggestions to be formalised and to now go through PMHCDRG.

To assist you with the process of explaining your issue to the Department, please find an example paper that Brisbane North produced that you can use as a best practice sample - Brisbane North PHN Example Paper.

Logicly are happy to provide comment on your paper before you formally submit it. To request this, please contact the PMHC Helpdesk at support@pmhc-mds.com.

Final papers should be submitted directly to the Department of Health at MentalHealthData@health.gov.au. However, we would appreciate it if you could copy in the PMHC Helpdesk whenever possible.
