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.
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
This guide is intended to provide assistance when assigning care types, especially for those patients that may potentially have care that applies to more than one care type.
The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority is committed to providing the Australian health care industry with a nationally consistent method of classifying all types of patients, their treatment and associated costs. Consequently, resources continue to be devoted to the ongoing development of a Diagnosis Related Groups (DRG) classification system based on local clinical practice.
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 third rolling Three Year Data Plan, covering the period 2015-16 to 2017-18.
The purpose of this costing study was to undertake an analysis of CALD patients to inform a policy decision for whether an adjustment is warranted to the National Efficient Price for CALD patients.
National Hospital Cost Data Collection, Data Request Specifications, Round 19 (Financial year 2014-15)8 December 2015
The National Hospital Cost Data Collection (NHCDC) Data Request Specifications (DRS) list the data elements to be submitted to IHPA and include the validation rules which will be applied to the data on submission.
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).

The Australian Refined Diagnosis Related Group (AR-DRG) Version 8.0 was implemented from July 1, 2016 and is the Australian Diagnosis Related Group (DRG) patient classification system that provides a clinically meaningful way of relating the types of patients treated in the hospital to the resources required by the hospital. AR-DRGs incorporate the ICD-10-AM/ACHI/ACS.
The AR-DRG Version 8.0 is published as a set of three Definition Manuals described below.
