MHSDS v2.0 Technical Output Specification

The Technical Output Specification for MHSDS v2.0 contains all of the information included in the Data Set Specification published on the SCCI website. This information will remain static as part of this Information Standard release. The MHSDS v.2.0 Technical Output Specification also includes additional information relating to the validations carried out by the Bureau Service Portal and the derived data items that are included in the provider and commissioner extracts. The validations and derivations are not controlled through the SCCI process and can therefore be subject to change.

The Bureau Service Portal (BSP) will be developed to the MHSDS v2.0 Technical Output Specification below to accept submissions from 01/06/2017 using the MHSDS v2.0 IDB only.
