The goal of the Consultation and review of the AR-DRG and ICD-10-AM/ACHI/ACS Classification Systems report was to review the end-to-end development processes, implementation arrangements and user needs in developing and implementing updates to the following classifications, now and into the future:
The ICD-10-AM/ACHI/ACS classification system is comprised of the following classifications:
- International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, Tenth Revision, Australian Modification (ICD-10-AM)
- Australian Classification of Health Interventions (ACHI)
- Australian Coding Standards (ACS)
ICD-10-AM/ACHI/ACS Eleventh Edition is published as a set of five volumes which contain the following products:
The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) is currently developing a new classification for non-admitted care - the Australian Non-Admitted Care Classification (ANACC) - in response to the recommendations of public consultations in 2013 and 2014 on non-admitted care classification.
This document provides background to the development of the new classification, explains the data elements and collection protocols, reporting requirements, and how the data is grouped.
This document provides an overview of the content of the ATTC Version 1.0 including the scope, structure and relevant activities.

AR-DRG Version 9.0 Final Report
AR-DRG Version 9.0 was approved by the Pricing Authority in November 2016. Development of Version 9.0 was finalised following clinical and statistical analysis and in consultation with clinicians, jurisdictions and other health sector stakeholders. It has been used to price admitted acute episodes of care from 1 July 2018.
The AR-DRG Version 9.0 final report details the changes and rationale for the refinement process.
The purpose of this costing study was to undertake a Teaching, Training and Research (TTR) cost and activity data collection at a representative sample of Australian hospitals and produce costed data to inform the development of a TTR classification.
The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority is committed to providing the Australian health care industry with a nationally consistent method of classifying all types of patients, their treatment and associated costs. Consequently, resources continue to be devoted to the ongoing development of a Diagnosis Related Groups (DRG) classification system based on local clinical practice.
This report presents the results of phase one of the project to develop Australian Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (AR-DRG)1 Version (V) 8.0. This phase focuses on the case complexity component of the classification that has not been reviewed for many years
The purpose of this costing study was to undertake an analysis of CALD patients to inform a policy decision for whether an adjustment is warranted to the National Efficient Price for CALD patients.
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. This ensured that all services were accounted for and costed appropriately providing an accurate cost of delivering multiple services across multiple settings (e.g. overhead costs are apportioned across all patients).
The purpose of this report is to review the costs of providing care to Indigenous patients accessing public hospital services. This work was commissioned in response to stakeholder concerns that the national activity based funding system does not adequately reflect Indigenous patient costs.
