MENTAL HEALTH MINIMUM DATA SET MESSAGE SCHEMA VERSIONS

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

The Mental Health Minimum Data Set will be collected from Health Care Providers via the Secondary Uses Service using the Mental Health Minimum Data Set-XML Message. The Mental Health Minimum Data Set data will be stored in the Secondary Uses Service enabling the Department of Health to produce routine reports.

XML is a markup language for data flows containing structured information and will meet Government standards in line with the e-Government Interoperability Framework (e-gif) requirements.

The schemas are published as .xsd files and are in zipped format. These are best viewed using XMLSPY or an equivalent XML viewer. Schema documentation as generated by XMLSPY is also available for download, this documentation may be viewed in most browsers.

A Schema Version Release Note file (in MS Word) is also included with the schema.

The following table sets out the approved versions of the Mental Health Minimum Data Set Message. To download a schema and its associated documentation, follow the hyperlink for the specific Message Version.
