Observations and information regarding an ORGANISATION.
Definitions relating to ORGANISATION include:
Note: ORGANISATIONS are governed by the fundamental standard for "Health and Social Care Organisation Reference Data" (HSC Org Ref Data).
For the purposes of the Organisation Data Service:
- Organisation is known as Health and Social Care Organisation (HSCOrg)
- An entity within the Health and Social Care Organisation Reference Data which conforms to the definition for Organisation.
- Organisation Site is known as Health and Social Care Organisation Site (HSCSite)
- The primary function of HSCSite is to identify an association between an HSCOrg and a place with which it is affiliated. All HSCSite entities have an association to an HSCOrg and the HSCSite record is generally real estate that the HSCOrg owns, provides a SERVICE at or has some staff based within. HSCSite does not provide unique identifiers for LOCATIONS. Multiple HSCSite instances can point to the same physical place if more than one HSCOrg owns or provides PATIENT care at that place; in this instance each HSCOrg may have its own HSCSite to reflect its affiliation with the same physical place (e.g. a hospital).
