As prescribed in Section 225 of the National Health Reform Act 2011, 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.
There is a growing discussion in Australia and internationally about the need to increase focus on delivering value-based health care with a focus on patient outcomes and experience.
IHPA’s Pricing Guidelines and the National Health Reform Agreement include provisions for IHPA to consider the impact on its work of evidence‑based, effective new technologies and innovations in models of health care.
