The Clinical Coding Practice Framework aims to support national consistency in clinical coding practice, by providing guidance in defining and promoting good practices for those involved in the clinical coding process.
It was developed by the Health Information Management Association of Australia in conjunction with the Clinical Coders’ Society of Australia, and incorporated feedback from public consultation.
The ICD-10-AM/ACHI/ACS classification system is comprised of the following classifications:
- International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, Tenth Revision, Australian Modification (ICD-10-AM)
- Australian Classification of Health Interventions (ACHI)
- Australian Coding Standards (ACS)
ICD-10-AM/ACHI/ACS Eleventh Edition is published as a set of five volumes which contain the following products:
The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) is currently developing a new classification for non-admitted care - the Australian Non-Admitted Care Classification (ANACC) - in response to the recommendations of public consultations in 2013 and 2014 on non-admitted care classification.
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 purpose of this costing study was to undertake a Teaching, Training and Research (TTR) cost and activity data collection at a representative sample of Australian hospitals and produce costed data to inform the development of a TTR classification.
