The Australian Non-Admitted Care Classification is being developed by the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority to enable the classification of patient based non-admitted data for the purposes of activity based funding.

The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority has undertaken the classification development in-house thus far. A draft shortlist of potential diagnosis-type and intervention-type variables has been developed and shared in a public consultation process with stakeholders for review.


The next stage of development for the Australian Non-Admitted Care Classification will involve revising the draft list of proposed diagnosis and intervention groupings based on stakeholders’ feedback in collaboration with non-admitted care experts and clinicians. The shortlist of variables will be tested, along with other key patient demographic and clinical information, as part of a multi-site and jurisdiction non-admitted care (including non-admitted subacute care) costing study.

The results of the costing study will serve as a basis for the final stages of development of the Australian Non-Admitted Care Classification Version 1.0.

The successful Tenderer will be required to undertake the costing study and provide recommendations for the development and implementation of the Australian Non-Admitted Care Classification. The Tenderer will be required to:

- Develop comprehensive project materials including a project plan with governance structure, stakeholder engagement plan and quality assurance framework.

- Undertake the costing study including developing a site sample strategy, site implementation plan, costing method, data request specification, pilot testing and launching full scale activity collection and costing.

- Consider the data collection process and data collection tool to enable the capture of activity and cost data for the costing study.

- Undertake reporting activities including progress reports, a pilot report and final report with recommendations.

- Supply all data collected during the study to IHPA.
