Three Year Data Plan 2017-18 to 2019-20

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 fifth rolling Three Year Data Plan, covering the period
2017-18 to 2019-20.

The data plans of IHPA and the Administrator have been harmonised to provide a standard document structure and an appendix listing shared data collection.

Supply of the data outlined in this document is required under Clause A8 of the National Health Reform Agreement, with details of Commonwealth and state compliance to be
reported six monthly in line with Clause B102.

IHPA will also continue to make de-identified aggregate and patient-level data available to the Commonwealth, states and territories consistent with Clause B97 of the National Health Reform Agreement and Section 220 of the National Health Reform Act 2011.

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 National Health Reform Agreement; and
  • describe the mechanisms, including timelines, that IHPA will use to collect data from the jurisdictions.
