Pricing Framework for Australian Public Hospital Services 2015-16 - Submission to Independent Hospitals Pricing Authority (IHPA) Discussion Paper

30 July 2014
The NRHA submission recommends a conservative approach to the pricing framework for block funding. Any changes should be based on the evidence as it accumulates for the effective block-funding of small rural hospitals. A better understanding of the role of Multi-Purpose Services and the contribution they make to healthcare in smaller rural and remote communities should form a part of this growing evidence base.
