As of 1 July 2021 the National Weighted Activity Unit (NWAU) developed as part of the National Funding Model is used to determine funding for health services. These include acute admitted care, subacute care, emergency care and non-admitted care activity. It replaces local funding models (WIES, SWIES, WASE, NAESGs).

Health Services Data (HSD) provides resources to help health services make this transition. You can also find answers to frequently asked questions about NWAU reports.

Note: the document Mapping to IHPA to calculate NWAU should be read before downloading the Victorian mapping for NWAU 2023-24.
