Round 15 (2010-11) and Round 16 (2011-12) National Hospital Cost Data Collection for Private and Private Day Hospital Facilities

On Wednesday 11 April 2012 Peak Private Bodies, Private Hospital Representatives and Private Health Consultants met to discuss Round 15 and Round 16 of the National Hospital Cost Data Collection (NHCDC) for Private and Private Day Hospital Facilities. It was confirmed that the cost reports containing Private Sector information need to be produced in a timely manner as these reports had a follow on effect on the way Private and Private Day Hospital Facilities carried out their business. Considering the timing of data collection, data output and production of the NHCDC Cost Report the Cost Report for Round 15 would fall outside a reasonable time frame.

For this reason the Cost Report for Round 15 of the NHCDC for Private and Private Day Hospital Facilities will not be produced. Discussions are ongoing to confirm how the Cost Report for Round 16 and future Rounds of the NHCDC for Private and Private Day Hospital Facilities will be addressed, however these Rounds are able to be produced in a reasonable time frame.

The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority would like to encourage all Private and Private Day Hospital Facilities to constructively consider how we can best proceed in regards to Round 16 and ongoing Rounds to ensure that Private and Private Day Hospital Facilities expectations are met.

A contact telephone number is being setup to take your suggestions and enquiries in the near future and we will release the number when the telephone line is available.
