Input File Formats

QuickSnap accepts a CSV file containing AN-SNAP data items.  Each row contains the AN-SNAP data items for grouping a single Episode or Palliative Care Phase.

QuickSnap supports a number of file formats, depending on the version of AN-SNAP to which you are grouping:

Version 3 Formats

  • QuickSnap Native Format: this format uses the native AN-SNAP code sets and will allow you to arrive at any AN-SNAP class (it supports both Overnight and Ambulatory episode/phase types)
  • QuickSnap DSS Compatible Format: this format uses data items and code sets from IPHA's DSS (Data Set Specification) and DRS (Data Request Specification) standards. 
    • At present, DSS does not contain all the data items required for grouping Ambulatory episodes, however this format contains the data items necessary for grouping any overnight Episode 

Version 4 Formats

Please note that to use the AN-SNAP Version 4 formats, you will need to update to the latest version of QuickSnap. 

Each file format page includes an Excel template and a sample file in that format to help you understand how to use it.

Output File Formats

QuickSnap outputs the same file, with the AN-SNAP class (or error class) appended to the end of each row. 

Because AN-SNAP error classes are somewhat limited, QuickSnap can also create an 'error' file which lists in detail the errors which were encountered during grouping.
