HCP Annual Report

The Hospital Casemix Protocol (HCP) 2009-10 Annual Report has been released on the Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA) website.

The HCP Annual Report includes health statistics received from private health insurers detailing information relating to patient statistics.

Recent changes to the HCP data collection include:
  • Adding page and table numbers to the report;
  • Splitting charge weight by state;

  • Produce reports based on both version 4.2 and 6.0 AR-DRGs; and
