This was the first in a series of public consultation papers to inform the final stage in the development of the first iteration of the Australian Mental Health Care Classification (AMHCC). It built upon consultations that were undertaken by the University of Queensland (UQ) in the early stages of this project, and through targeted consultation undertaken by IHPA through the AMHCC Mental Health Costing Study.
This paper set out work undertaken to date and sought stakeholders’ views on the approach to the classification’s development and its proposed structure.
The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority invited all interested parties to provide comment on the Development of the Australian Mental Health Care Classification.
IHPA values the feedback it receives from jurisdictions, peak bodies, other interested stakeholder groups, and the community as it progresses work to develop and refine the Australian Mental Health Care Classification (AMHCC) and its supporting material, both in the immediate future and the longer term.
