The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) is responsible for relevant data collections to enable activity based funding. IHPA’s Data Access and Release Policy outlines the principles and processes adopted by IHPA in the discretionary access and release of data collected under the National Health Reform Act 2011. The Policy provides guidance as to how IHPA will determine whether to release data.
This Policy outlines the processes by which the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority stabilises volatility in the year-on-year price weights and adjustments to ensure funding stability and predictability for local hospital networks and hospital managers.
The Back-casting Policy outlines the process IHPA follows when back-casting the NEP or the NEC for the purpose of the calculation of the Commonwealth’s funding, as set out in the NHRA (clause A40).
