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.
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.
The Tier 2 Non-Admitted Services Compendium provides guidance on the counting and classification rules associated with the Tier 2 Non-Admitted Services Classification (Tier 2).
The Tier 2 Non-Admitted Services Classification (Tier 2) supports the introduction of activity based funding (ABF) for non-admitted hospital services in the Australian public hospital system.
The Inter-rater reliability study final report was approved by the Pricing Authority in April 2017. The primary aims of the study were to test the inter-rater reliability of the mental health phase of care instrument, gather information about the clinicians' views of the mental health phase of care, identifying ways of increasing the clarity to reduce the ambiguity of the instrument, and to provide recommendations on how the instrument may be refined.
Report for the counting, costing and classifying of Non-Admitted Multidisciplinary Case Conferences (MDCCs) where patient is not present17 May 2017
IHPA commissioned a study of the counting, costing and classifying of multidisciplinary case conferences (MDCCs) for non-admitted patients, when the patient is not present. MDCCs have become a more common and important aspect of clinical care. The increasing complexity and specialisation in health care has driven the need for more formalised mechanisms for multidisciplinary collaboration.
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.
This document provides information for clinicians to enable them to assess phases accurately when applying the new concept of mental health phase of care.
This document describes the Australian Mental Health Care Classification and the process IHPA has undertaken to develop the new classification.
