As prescribed in Section 225 of the National Health Reform Act 2011 (the Act), the objectives of the IHPA Work Program are to:
- set out IHPA’s work program for the coming year; and
- invite interested persons (including states and territories) to make submissions to the Pricing Authority about the work program up to 30 days after publication.
An extract of Section 225 of the Act is attached at Appendix 1.
IHPA requires accurate activity, cost and expenditure data from jurisdictions on a timely basis in order to perform its core determinative functions.
This data plan sets out IHPA’s fifth rolling Three Year Data Plan, covering the period
2017-18 to 2019-20.
The data plans of IHPA and the Administrator have been harmonised to provide a standard document structure and an appendix listing shared data collection.
This document provides the technical specifications for how the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) developed the Activity Based Funding (ABF) models for the service streams to be funded for the National Efficient Price (NEP) and the National Efficient Cost (NEC) Determinations for 2017-18.
This document was produced as an accompaniment to the NEP13 and NEC13 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 2012, and provides guidance to hospitals, Local Health Networks (LHN) and state and territory health authorities on how to apply these to hospital activity.
