Australian Mental Health Outcomes and Classification Network

 

Description

The Australian Mental Health Outcomes and Classification Network (AMHOCN) was established by the Australian Government in 2003 to provide guidance to the mental health sector to support the sustainable implementation of the National outcomes and casemix collection (NOCC) as part of routine clinical practice.

The NOCC is a national initiative that has been developed as a means for assessing whether a change has occurred for a consumer of mental health care. The collection includes 12 clinician-rated and consumer-rated measures of mental health and wellbeing. The information obtained from the various measures allows the clinician and consumer to record the consumer's recovery journey. The information can also be used to improve the delivery of mental health services.

AMHOCN seeks to work collaboratively with the mental health sector, while also supporting the states and territories in the implementation of the collection. The following three elements reflect the core business of AMHOCN:
