Data Compliance Policy

The IHPA Data Compliance Policy describes the process and criteria by which IHPA will publically report on compliance by jurisdictions with the data requirements and data submission dates specified in the current Three Year Data Plan 2018-19 to 2020-21.

The purpose of the policy is to provide a published record of jurisdictional compliance. It does not capture the full data quality assurance process which is outlined in the IHPA Data Quality Assurance Framework.

The Data Compliance Policy fulfils IHPA’s responsibilities under the National Health Reform Agreement (NHRA). Clause B102 of the NHRA requires that:

Each body will publish details of Commonwealth and State compliance with the data requirements of the national bodies on a quarterly basis.
