NWAU calculators 2016–17

To assist in applying the National Efficient Price Determination 2016–17 price weights and adjustments, the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority has developed versions of the National Weighted Activity Unit (NWAU) calculators described in the National Pricing Model Technical Specification. Each iteration of the NWAU calculators includes a user guide which outlines the introductory steps required to download and operate the calculators in Microsoft Excel.

Access SAS-based calculators for 2016–17 here. Public hospital managers seeking assistance with implementation are asked to contact their jurisdictional representative.

NWAU calculators are available for each service stream below.
