HoNOS reports: Jul 2017 to Jun 2018

Publication date: 12 November 2018

Te Pou publishes Programme for the Integration of Mental Health Data (PRIMHD) reports every three months.

These reports summarise the PRIMHD data submitted by all district health boards (DHBs) for the period July 2017 to June 2018.

For details regarding team type classification please refer to the PDF in the downloads section below.

National summary reports are provided for:

  • HoNOS (used with adults from 18-64 years of age)
  • HoNOSCA (used with children up to the age of 17 years)
  • HoNOS65+ (used with adults 65 years and older).

Each summary report is in three parts.

  1. Collection completion and validity: This details the completeness of the data set provided by your Mental Health Services. This is important because it indicates how valid and reliable the data sets are likely to be. The less complete the data set, the less valid the information is likely to be.
  2. Outcomes-related information: This provides indications about what changes have occurred for service users between entering and leaving the service. Outcomes are assessed by comparing the group admitted and the group discharged from the service in the same time period. This should provide a reasonable indication of outcomes achieved unless the  service user mix has changed significantly over the usual period for which service is delivered.
  3. Service-related information: This provides information about the services, such as the overall severity of service users who use different services.

Please note: Numbers in figures 1 and 2 have been calculated using the revised compliance specification. As the revised rules have been applied the numbers are not directly comparable to reports prior to the January-December 2014 set.
