This filter has a number of option on how to use it. Starting on the top left here are the different elements of the filter that can be combined:

  • Patient with selected MBS Item(s) in Date Range

Default options is "Any" which means refers to the date range below and means that you can search for patients with any item claimed within the date range or patients with none of the items claimed within the date range. An example would be a search for patients with an item 10990 claimed in the last 6 months, where you would select the "Any" option here, then select the Claim Date Range of 6 months and the MBS Item Number 10990.

If you wanted to find all patients who did not have the 10990 claimed in the last 6 months, you need to change the Patient with selected MBS Item(s) in Date Range to "None"

  • Claim Date Range

Here you select the date range of interest, default is 'All' but any specific date range can be selected

  • MBS Item Categories

Some items have multiple MBS items depending on duration of the consult and others like the residential age care facility related MBS items are made up of a group of items. To make it easier to select multiple items we have created the categories. When a MBS item category is selected, all items from that category is included, or when the "No" option is selected, all items from that category are excluded.

  • MBS Item Numbers

All MBS items claimed at your practice will be listed here and can be included or excluded by selecting the "No" option.

To apply a MBS Attendance Filter you first select if it is an inclusive or exclusive search, then you can select your the date range on the left and then use either the categories like RACF or use individual MBS items. The list of MBS items will show any item claimed at your clinic.

If you are loading an older extract, this filter will be greyed out and not operational, until you collect a new dataset with the latest version of CAT4.

By selecting the 'No' option, you are excluding patients with a specific item or group of items claimed at your practice. Selecting the category or item number will only show patients who had the item(s) claimed at your practice.

This filter, in combination with other filters and reports will enable you to find the group of patients of interest and the filter can be used for patient management as well as practice business management.
