Review of the National Hospital Cost Data Collection (NHCDC) ConsultationThe purpose of this Circular is to invite all those with an interest in the NHCDC to attend a workshop at the end of January as part of the NHCDC review (reference previous circular PHI 02/08).
The NHCDC is currently under review by KPMG. The review will consider public and the private sector, costing methodology and cost data collection processes to ensure that the collection remains timely, valid, robust and reliable. Further, the review will consider non-admitted (emergency department and outpatient) activity in the public and private sectors and ways to improve this component of the data collection.
Workshops will be conducted as follows:
Melbourne on Wednesday 30th January at the Hilton, Melbourne Airport; or
Sydney on Thursday 31st January at the Stamford Plaza, Sydney Airport.
The workshops will commence at 10 am and finish at 3pm.
