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.
