Three Year Data Plan 2016-17 to 2018-19

IHPA requires accurate activity, cost and expenditure data from jurisdictions on a timely basis in order to perform its core determinative functions.

This data plan sets out IHPA’s third rolling Three Year Data Plan, covering the period 2016-17 to 2018-19.

In order to harmonise the data plans of the NHR Agencies, a standard document structure has been adopted between IHPA, the Administrator and the NHPA. This data plan includes the standard sections and also includes an appendix listing the data collections common to all NHR Agencies.

Supply of the data outlined in this document is required as per Clause A8 of the NHRA, with details of Commonwealth and state compliance to be reported six monthly as per Clause B102.

Consistent with Clause B97 of the NHRA IHPA will continue to make de-identified aggregate and patient level data available to the Commonwealth, states and territories.

The objectives of the IHPA Three Year Data Plan are to:

  • communicate IHPA’s data requirements over the next three years to jurisdictions and other government agencies, in accordance with Clause B85 of the NHRA; and
  • describe the mechanisms, including timelines, that IHPA will use to collect data from the jurisdictions.
