National Hospital Cost Data Collection, Data Request Specifications, Round 18 (Financial year 2013-14)29 August 2014
The National Hospital Cost Data Collection (NHCDC) Data Request Specifications (DRS) list the data elements to be submitted to IHPA and include the validation rules which will be applied to the data on submission.
The NHCDC Strategic Review has been commissioned by the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) to assess the NHCDC's suitability as the primary data collection to determine the NEP, seek the views of stakeholders regarding issues with the current NHCDC and its future directions, and recommend a roadmap for the future. This review involved national consultation with 148 stakeholders, to examine positive and negative aspects of the NHCDC through interview and submission.
This document was produced as an accompaniment to the NEP14 and NEC14 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 2014, and provides guidance to hospitals, Local Health Networks (LHN) and state and territory health authorities on how to apply these to hospital activity.
