The National Hospital Cost Data Collection (NHCDC) Report and infographic present the results from the Round 24 NHCDC (financial year 2019–20). 

It is important to note that the Coronavirus Disease 2019 pandemic impacted the accuracy and completeness of public hospital expenditure and activity submitted to the Round 24 NHCDC. The Round 24 NHCDC data may not be consistent with prior years and across states and territories.

These documents account for the hospital costs submitted by jurisdictions for the following activity streams:

  • admitted acute
  • non-admitted
  • emergency department
  • mental health
  • subacute and non-acute.

The appendix to the NHCDC Report contains detailed tables relating to the collection and Data Quality Statements received from jurisdictions.
