Block funded hospitals

Independent Health Pricing Authority, 2012

The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) engaged Health Policy Analysis to undertake a project to classify block funded hospitals, identify the ways in which an efficient cost for these hospitals can be determined, and estimate an efficient cost level.

Health Policy Analysis worked with another team of consultants (Health Policy Solutions) to develop options for the efficient price of block funded hospitals. A preferred option was subsequently agreed and formed the basis of recommendations put to governments by IHPA.
