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 Tenth Edition and AR-DRG Version 9.0) is available from the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) website link

The ACCD Classification Information Portal (CLIP) is the web-based information portal used to help us communicate with you. Registering with CLIP will allow you access to Coding Rules, to view and make public submissions to the AR-DRG Classification System and maintain your contact details.
