The public mental health organsations in all Australian States and Territories collect the results of mental health measures. Data files from the States and Territories are transferred to Strategic Data through the Online Validator, which validates the data files according to the rules prescribed by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.
Submitted files are reviewed by the AMHOCN Analysis and Reporting component before being accepted and loaded into the Data Warehouse. Once in the Data Warehouse the data is further filtered and grouped into Collection Occasions and Episodes of Care.
Processed data is extracted from the Data Warehouse on an as needs basis for the AMHOCN Analysis and Reporting component.
Once data has been loaded into the Data Warehouse it is aggregated and placed in the AMHOCN Data Cube. Strategic Data have developed a range of applications that query the Data Cube to provide NOCC information to a range of audiences. There is also a REST interface to the Data Cube to allow third party developers to produce their own applications.
