Health Planning Units
Health Planning Units are a key feature of the AusHFG and provide detailed information regarding common clinical departments or services in hospitals and other healthcare settings. Examples include a range of inpatient units, a medical imaging department and community health centre.
Each Health Planning Unit contains information relating to a service description, related policies and guidelines, operational planning and design considerations. Each Health Planning Unit also includes a detailed schedule of accommodation and functional relationship diagram. In selected Health Planning Units, the schedules of accommodation may describe a range of service levels or scenarios so that information can be used to brief services ranging from small district hospitals through to complex tertiary hospital services.
Each Health Planning Unit is reviewed on a three year cycle to ensure changes in clinical, technical or operational requirements are considered.
