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 eighth rolling Three Year Data Plan, covering the period 2020–21 to 2022–23. The Three Year Data Plan specifies the data requirements and timelines that IHPA will use to collect data over the next three years.
Governments agreed to establish the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (the IHPA) to provide independent advice about the efficient cost of public hospital services. Much of this advice will be evidence‐ based, drawing on technical knowledge and expertise about the classification, costing and funding of public hospital services. But, the IHPA must also balance a range of national policy objectives including improving the efficiency and accessibility of public hospital services.
The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) has commissioned the development of a comprehensive Pricing Framework for use in the implementation of activity based funding (ABF) for Australian public hospitals. This report is a short summary of the implementation options, together with selected consultation questions.
