Describing health is essential to improving Australia's wellbeing and providing a firm base for research. Classifications are the building blocks for health information.

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. The team at NCCH contains Australia’s top experts in health classification for diseases and other health conditions and health interventions, and their application in activity based funding/casemix. Our associates at the University, Australian ICF Disability and Rehabilitation Research Program (AIDDARP) and the Family Medicine Research Centre (FMRU) are respectively Australia’s leaders in the development and use of functioning and disability classifications and primary care classification.

The University, through the NCCH is now leading the Australian Consortium for Classification Development (ACCD) with consortium partners the University of Western Sydney and KPMG. The ACCD will develop the casemix and statistical classification systems in an ongoing capacity, based on clinical and expert advice that builds on the previous investments in the system.
