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.
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.

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.
National Hospital Cost Data Collection, Independent Financial Review, Round 18 (Financial year 2013-14)7 March 2016
The National Hospital Cost Data Collection (NHCDC) is the primary data collection that the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) relies on to calculate the National Efficient Price used for the funding of public hospital services. To ensure that the quality of NHCDC data is robust and fit-for-purpose, IHPA commissions an independent financial review to assess whether all participating hospitals have included appropriate costs and patient activity.
National Hospital Cost Data Collection, Public Hospitals Cost Report, Round 18 (Financial year 2013-14)11 February 2016
The National Hospital Cost Data Collection (NHCDC) is a unique collection and remarkable evidence base that is used across the Australian health system.
National Hospital Cost Data Collection, Private Sector Cost Report, Financial year 2013-14 (Round 18)27 January 2016
The private sector National Hospital Cost Data Collection (NHCDC) is a voluntary collection that produces a range of hospital cost and activity information by Australian Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (AR-DRG). This report includes the findings from Round 18 (financial year 2013-14) of the NHCDC for acute admitted care provided by overnight private hospitals.
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

National Hospital Cost Data Collection, Public Hospitals Cost Report, Round 17 (Financial year 2012-13)8 December 2015
This NHCDC Australian Public Hospitals Cost report includes the results of participation across the various jurisdictions. The reports investigates a number of specific questions relating to hospital costs for admitted, non admitted and emergency department services. The report includes jurisdiction level data and the national cost weight tables.
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).
