Feedback gathered from jurisdictional, stakeholder and public consultations is crucial to the success of the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority’s work program.
Each year, IHPA releases its Work Program outlining the key areas of work for the following year for public consultation.
IHPA also releases the Pricing Framework for Australian Public Hospital Services for public consultation each year. The Pricing Framework outlines the key principles which will underline the release of the National Efficient Price and National Efficient Cost within that year.
In addition to public and jurisdictional consultations, IHPA utilises its wide range of committees and working groups to guide its work program. Members of each group offer expertise in a range of fields and represent the broad range of stakeholders within the health sector.
