The Pricing Framework 2016-17 builds on the Pricing Frameworks from previous years (2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16). For simplicity, where IHPA has reaffirmed a previous principle, the supporting argument has not been restated in this year’s paper.
The non-admitted study was comprehensive across a range of settings (e.g. outpatients, community and satellite clinics). Similarly all service streams were included regardless of funding source.

The costing study on home delivered dialysis was undertaken in 2014. The purpose of the study was to collate and compare the range of costing studies and economic evaluations that have been carried out on these services over the past decade.
The report identifies two key studies - NSW Dialysis Costing Study, conducted in 2008, and Queensland Health Renal Replacement Therapy Costing Study, conducted in 2008 - which are useful in estimating the current costs of home-based dialysis.
