The Governance framework for the development of the admitted care classifications outlines the classification development and approval process, the guiding principles and classification products for the following classifications:
This document guides costing practitioners on the steps to capturing end-to-end COVID-19 activity and expenses under the National Partnership Agreement (NPA). It identifies the principles to be applied, the scope of activity and costs to be funded, cost allocation methods and NPA specific cost centres for cost allocation. This document also introduces two new non-patient products and provides information on how to create and map intermediate products.
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 recognises the need for the pricing of public hospital services to respond in a timely manner to the introduction of new health technologies and innovations in models of care.
A jurisdiction may request IHPA to consider any legitimate and unavoidable costs in the delivery of public hospital services. The purpose of this Framework is to assist jurisdictions in making submissions to IHPA on this issue, to layout the process which IHPA will follow in assessing submissions, and the process to determine adjustments to the NEP.
IHPA has a role to investigate and make recommendations concerning cross-border disputes between states and territories, and to make assessments of cost-shifting disputes. This Framework outlines the processes to investigate these disputes following a request by a health minister to ensure the timely, equitable and transparent management of these disputes.
On 13 March 2020, the Commonwealth and all state and territory governments signed the National Partnership on COVID-19 Response, in order to provide financial assistance for the additional costs incurred by health services in responding to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak.
