The National Centre for Classification in Health (NCCH) at The University of Sydney is Australia’s leading centre of expertise in health classification systems and their applications. Health classifications are the building blocks of health information for management, measurement and research essential to providing the high quality and efficient health care services.

The University, through the NCCH leads the Australian Consortium for Classification Development (ACCD) with consortium partner Western Sydney University. The ACCD develops activity based funding and statistical classification systems for the Independent Hospitals Pricing Authority, based on clinical and expert advice that builds on the previous investments in the system.

The team at NCCH and our associates constitute Australia’s top experts in health classifications. Our expertise covers diseases and other health conditions and health interventions, and their application in activity based funding/casemix, as well as functioning and disability and primary care.
