AR-DRG Classification System Development & Refinement Services

The National Centre for Classification in Health (The University of Sydney) leads the Australian Consortium for Classification Development (ACCD), in collaboration with Western Sydney University and KPMG, in the continuing development of the Australian Refined Diagnosis Related Groups (AR-DRG) Classification System (which includes ICD-10-AM/ACHI/ACS and AR-DRGs).

The latest version of the AR-DRG Classification (ICD-10-AM/ACHI/ACS Ninth Edition and AR-DRG Version 8.0) is available from the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) website link
