Activity based funding data quality
NSW Health has adequate arrangements to ensure that the data it uses for activity based funding is of reasonable quality. Activity Based Funding (ABF) represented 75 per cent of the funds provided to Local Health Districts (LHDs) and Speciality Health Networks in 2013-14.
For ABF to work it requires detailed information about patient activity in health services and costs of providing care.
