Collecting data for monthly reports
The Administrator collects data from states and territories to support monthly reporting on the level of government funding (state, territory and Commonwealth) provided to each local hospital network, and the basis on which those funding levels have been set.
NHR funding amounts and service volumes are provided by states and territories as service estimates at the start of each financial year. These annual estimates (together with the basis on which funding levels have been set) are shown at local hospital network level for both activity based and block funding. Estimates may continue to be refined during the course of the year. These estimates form the basis of monthly reporting of service volumes until actual service numbers become available.
Public health funding (provided by the Commonwealth only) is shown as a single block of funding for each state or territory.
