The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA) is proud to welcome you to the Activity Based Funding Conference 2019 (ABF19). Focusing on ‘Activity Based Funding: Cost, value and outcomes’, ABF19 will facilitate discussion among industry leaders, policy makers and healthcare staff from around Australia, and around the world.
Following on from the success of IHPA’s Activity Based Funding Conference and the 33rd Patient Classification Systems International Conference 2017 (ABFPCSI17), ABF19 will be the sixth iteration of IHPA’s conference series.
ABF19 will be hosted at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from Monday 13 to Wednesday 15 May 2019, and will comprise an engaging program of workshops, keynote, plenary and panel sessions, and a range of abstract presentations. Delegates will also have to opportunity to meet their industry peers whilst experiencing the best hospitality that Melbourne has to offer through two networking events.
The Independent Hospital Pricing Authority’s (IHPA’s) Activity Based Funding (ABF) Conference series is primarily a vehicle by which the agency’s stakeholders can explore and debate the application of ABF in Australian hospitals. It also provides an opportunity to hear from international peers in the health care industry about how their systems function.
