Abstract

[Extract] Indicators used to plan and evaluate health services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (Indigenous) people are based upon administrative data. In major Queensland public hospitals, the Emergency Department Information System (EDIS) captures records of patient progress in emergency departments (EDs).1 Inaccurate representation of Indigenous status in datasets has been previously identified, and government agencies have been directed to improve data quality, and particularly to reduce the under‐reporting of Indigenous status.2, 3
