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 IHPA Annual Report for 2015-16 was tabled on 17 October 2016.

National Hospital Cost Data Collection, Data Request Specifications, Round 20, (Financial year 2015-16)21 September 2016
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.
This document provides information for clinicians to enable them to assess phases accurately when applying the new concept of mental health phase of care.
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
This document describes the Australian Mental Health Care Classification and the process IHPA has undertaken to develop the new classification.
The Pricing Framework 2016-17 builds on the Pricing Frameworks from previous years (2012-13, 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16). For simplicity, where IHPA has reaffirmed a previous principle, the supporting argument has not been restated in this year’s paper.
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 2016-17 to 2018-19.
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.
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 2016-17.
The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (Pricing Authority) is established under the National Health Reform Act 2011 (Cth) (the Act), and by virtue of section 131(1) of the Act is invested with the following functions relevant to this 2016-17 National Efficient Cost Determination (Determination):
