Development of AN-SNAP V4 to classify subacute and non-acute care

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • The Australian National Subacute and Non-Ac

    ute Patient Classification (AN-SNAP) is a

    casemix classification designed for four car

    e types designated "subacute" in Australia

    (rehabilitation, palliative care, geriat

    ric evaluation and management (GEM) and

    psychogeriatric care) and one non-acute care t

    ype. AN-SNAP classifies care across admitted

    and non-admitted settings. The admitted cl

    asses have been used for planning and

    benchmarking in a number of Australian jurisdicti

    ons and the private reha

    bilitation sector for

    more than 15 years. In 2012 AN-SNAP was adopted

    as one of the suite of classifications to

    be used nationally for funding hospital serv

    ices. The first version of AN-SNAP was

    developed in 1996 by the Centre for Health Se

    rvice Development, University of Wollongong.

    Three subsequent versions have been develope

    d by the same organisation. This presentation

    describes the development of the most rece

    nt version, AN-SNAP

    V4. The project was

    commissioned by the Independent Hospital Pric

    ing Authority and repr

    esented an important

    element in the infrastructure to support

    the ongoing implementation

    of a subacute and non-

    acute ABF model in Australia.
