There are three key publications that support the Tier 2 Non-Admitted Services Classification.
Tier 2 Non-Admitted Services Definitions Manual: This document provides the structural overview of the classification and the definition of each of the Tier 2 classes.
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:
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 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.
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 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 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.
