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.
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.
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.
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.
This document was produced as an accompaniment to the NEP13 and NEC13 Determinations. It provides the technical specifications for how IHPA developed the ABF models for the service streams to be funded on this basis from 1 July 2013 (acute admitted, emergency department, non-admitted, subacute and mental health care).
