OSR MCH-3 - Maternal and Child Health MCH-3 Record whether your organisation ran the following antenatal and maternal group activities during the Financial Year

How many antenatal and maternal group activities were run during the year?


Where possible, record the number of sessions run.

The report counts procedures with an export code starting MCH-GRP, analysed by day and encounter place in order to deduce the number of group sessions conducted, assuming that the same type of session is not run repeatedly on the same day at the same place.

For details about export codes, see Procedure, Immunisation, Pathology & Medicare codes reference.

Business rules All clinical items with appropriate codes recorded in any patient record is deemed to be evidence of attendance at a maternal and child health group health promotion event. Actual attendance is not counted so where a non-patient record is used to record anonymous attendance, the event is still recorded.
Additional data recording considerations No clinical items with these codes are distributed by Communicare so all data collection for this indicator is done using locally defined procedures.
