Guide to PRIMHD supplementary consumer record collection and use

The purpose of this guide is to provide mental health and addiction services with a consistent methodology for the collection and use of the supplementary consumer record (SCR) data. This guide also informs funders and planners and the Ministry of Health PRIMHD national collections team. It is not a replacement for the PRIMHD technical documentation or HISO PRIMHD standards but it is intended to support a consistent national approach. High levels of quality in the SCR data reported to PRIMHD will ensure maximum utility of data in the national collection.

It is understood that DHB and NGO services may collect wellness plan and social outcome indicator data at a much more detailed level. This guide does not prohibit this granular collection but will serve to ensure that detailed level data can be mapped consistently to meet PRIMHD requirements.

The updated supplementary consumer record (version 1.5) includes changes that occurred in NCAMP21.

This document should be used in conjunction with the following documents.
