Adult Mental Health Care Clusters are 21 groupings of Mental Health PATIENTS based on their characteristics, and are a way of classifying individuals utilising Mental Health Services that forms the basis for payment.
An Adult Mental Health Care Cluster is assigned using a decision tree or algorithm based on the PERSON SCORE from the Adult Mental Health Clustering Tool undertaken by a CARE PROFESSIONAL for the PATIENT.
This is done by first assigning the PATIENT to one of three Mental Health Care Cluster Super Classes, to narrow down the number of possible Adult Mental Health Care Clusters which are applicable to the PATIENTS condition. The PATIENT is then assigned to the most appropriate of this sub-set of Adult Mental Health Care Clusters.
