Teaching, Training and Research (TTR) Costing Study Public—Consultation Paper

The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) conducted a Teaching, Training and Research (TTR) costing study to inform the development of a TTR classification. The project involved a cost and activity data collection across a representative sample of Australian hospitals, and thereby develop a costed data file to inform the development of a TTR classification. IHPA engaged a consortium, led by Paxton Partners to undertake this costing study.

The purpose of the public consultation paper was to provide an outline of the background, scope and proposed approach to the costing study, so that interested parties could learn about the work IHPA is undertaking and provide written feedback if desired. The paper did not provide comprehensive details of all aspects of the costing study. Instead, certain aspects were emphasised – such as the high-level costing methodology and approach to data collection.

Interested parties were therefore invited to read the consultation paper, and provide a response to the consultation questions.
