The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) is currently developing a new classification for non-admitted care - the Australian Non-Admitted Care Classification (ANACC) - in response to the recommendations of public consultations in 2013 and 2014 on non-admitted care classification.
The NHCDC Report and infographics present the results from Round 21 NHCDC (Financial Year 2016-17).
These documents describe the hospital costs submitted by jurisdictions for the following activity streams:
- admitted acute
- emergency department
- mental health
- sub-acute and non-acute.
The Appendix Tables present detailed results from the collection by activity stream and jurisdiction.
This document provides the technical specifications for how the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) developed the Activity Based Funding (ABF) models for the service streams to be funded for the National Efficient Price (NEP) and the National Efficient Cost (NEC) Determinations for 2019-20.

National Hospital Cost Data Collection, Independent Financial Review, Round 21 (Financial year 2016-17)14 February 2019
The National Hospital Cost Data Collection (NHCDC) is the primary data collection that the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) relies on to calculate the National Efficient Price used for the funding of public hospital services. To ensure that the quality of NHCDC data is robust and fit-for-purpose, IHPA commissions an independent financial review to assess whether all participating hospitals have included appropriate costs and patient activity.
This table presents cost bucket level cost data from Round 20 of the National Hospital Cost Data Collection (NHCDC) for all end classes identified in the Australian National Sub and Non-Acute Patients (AN-SNAP) classification.
The Pricing Framework for Australian public hospital services 2019-20 builds on the seven Pricing Frameworks from previous years. The Pricing Framework is the key strategic document underpinning the National Efficient Price (NEP) and National Efficient Cost (NEC) Determinations for the financial year 2019-20.
