National Hospital Cost Data Collection, Data Request Specifications, Round 24 (Financial Year 2019-20)30 July 2020
The National Hospital Cost Data Collection (NHCDC) Data Request Specifications (DRS) contain detailed guidance regarding the submission of Round 24 NHCDC data.
Each year, IHPA publishes the General List of In-Scope Public Hospital Services (the General List) as part of the National Efficient Price Determination.
The General List defines public hospital services eligible for Commonwealth funding, except where funding is otherwise agreed between the Commonwealth and a state or territory.
IHPA is responsible for relevant data collections to enable activity based funding. IHPA’s Data Access and Release Policy outlines the principles and processes adopted by IHPA in the discretionary access and release of data collected under the National Health Reform Act 2011. The Policy provides guidance as to how IHPA will determine whether to release data.
Following the completion of the 2016 Inter-Rater Reliability (IRR) study to test the consistency of clinician application of the mental health phase of care, the poor to fair reliability outcome led to the commencement of the refinement project.
National Hospital Cost Data Collection (NHCDC), Private Hospital Report, Round 22 (Financial year 2017 – 18)17 April 2020
The private sector National Hospital Cost Data Collection (NHCDC) is a voluntary collection that produces a range of hospital cost and activity information by the Australian Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (AR-DRG). This report includes the findings from Round 22 (financial year 2017-18) of the NHCDC for acute admitted care provided by overnight private hospitals.
This document provides the technical specifications for how the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) developed the activity based funding models for the service streams to be funded for the National Efficient Price and the National Efficient Cost Determinations 2020–21.
The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) has developed the Australian Mental Health Care Classification Pricing Feasibility Report 2020–21 to provide an overview of the process undertaken by IHPA to shadow price admitted mental health services using the Australian Mental Health Care Classification (AMHCC) Version 1.0.
The National Hospital Cost Data Collection (NHCDC) Report, infographics and articles present the results from the Round 22 NHCDC (financial year 2017-18).
These documents describe the hospital costs submitted by jurisdictions for the following activity streams:
The National Hospital Cost Data Collection (NHCDC) is the primary data collection that the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) relies on to calculate the national efficient price used for the funding of public hospital services. To ensure that the quality of NHCDC data is robust and fit-for-purpose, IHPA commissions an independent financial review to assess whether all participating hospitals have included appropriate costs and patient activity.
The purpose of the Policy is to outline the processes by which IHPA adjusts for instability in the year-on-year price weights and adjustments.
The purpose of the Assessing Materiality of Changes Proposed to the National Pricing Model document is to outline the process IHPA follows when assessing the materiality of proposed changes to the national pricing models such as the introduction of new adjustments or alternative pricing policy approaches.
The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (the Act) regulates the internal reporting of suspected wrongdoing or disclosable conduct within public sector agencies. It provides a framework and protections for public officials who make eligible disclosures under the Act.
