Monthly Activity Collection
The Monthly Activity Collection (MAC) collects aggregate (or summary level) data on ‘Admitted’ and ‘Non-admitted’ patient activity and ‘Bed Availability’.
This data are submitted monthly to the Department of Health by the relevant reporting entities at different levels of the Queensland public hospital system. This includes public acute hospitals, public psychiatric hospitals and public nursing homes/hostels/ independent living units and multi-purpose health services, HHS and State. Whilst data are primarily reported to comply with State and Commonwealth Government reporting requirements, there are additional benefits of the availability of this data including informing cost modelling, funding, research and local business management. Data are submitted by the reporting entity to the Statistical Services Branch (SSB) of the Department of Health each month where it is prepared for reporting purposes.
