1 Technical Supplement OCTOBER 215

2 Business Council of October Like all first world countries, s population is ageing s population totals 23.9 million people today, and is projected to reach 39.7 million in , based on a growth rate of 1.3 per cent, per year. 1 The most significant predicted change to s demography is the continuation of the population s ageing. The number of ns aged 65 and over is projected to double by 255.

It ranks second on life expectancy and second on health-adjusted life expectancy. The only indicator for which ranks in the bottom half of countries is its obesity rate. On this indicator, ranks seventh ahead of the.

Life expectancy for Indigenous ns is approximately 1 years shorter than for non- Indigenous ns. In general, people from lower socioeconomic groups also have poorer health. Figure 7(b) confirms that the prevalence of self-reported cardiovascular disease is inversely proportional to socioeconomic status. ns living in regional and remote locations also tend to have poorer health outcomes than those living in major cities.

6 < Business Council of October Older ns typically use health services more often than others ns use the health system to varying degrees. Given that older people have a higher incidence of disease and illness, it is unsurprising that older people are more likely to use hospital care and pharmaceutical scripts.

7 Business Council of October Total health expenditure is growing much faster than GDP and the population In , total spending on health from all sources was estimated at $154.6 billion. Figure 1 shows that total health expenditure has been increasing each year and also as a proportion of GDP. Figure 1 shows that total health expenditure grew at 5 per cent per year on average in real terms over the decade to , which was significantly faster than GDP annual average growth in real terms (2.84 per cent) and annual average population growth (1.6 per cent).

8 Business Council of October A mix of factors drive growth in health expenditure These factors include population growth, population ageing, income growth and new technologies. Figure 12 depicts the Productivity Commission s estimates of the share of growth in real health expenditure from each of these drivers over the decade to Figure 12: Impact of drivers of health spending, to % of growth in real health expenditure Technology GDP growth Population growth Age adjustment Source: Productivity Commission, Impacts of Advances in Medical Technology in, 25 A predicted fiscal deficit across all governments calls for redesign With no policy change, and assuming demand continues at projected rates, it is estimated that the combined annual fiscal deficit across all levels of government could reach 5% of GDP by 25, or around $8 billion in today s terms.

9 Business Council of October Figure 14 shows that health is predicted to be the largest driver of fiscal pressures.

10 Business Council of October Figure 16 shows that the recent growth rate in health spending exceeds the growth rate of most other sectors.

11 Business Council of October s government expenditure on health ranks as the second lowest share of total health expenditure (68 per cent) ahead of the (49 per cent). Figure 18 shows that out-of-pocket expenses by individuals in account for 2 per cent of overall costs, which ranks as the highest of all eight countries.

12 Business Council of October s primary care funding model is predominantly fee-for-service Figure 2 shows that the composition of primary care funding delivered by governments in the eight comparator countries differs significantly. Figure 2: Composition of primary care funding, by country 1 1 % 1 % New Zealand 8 United Kingdom Fee for service Payment for outcomes Capitation United States Source: McKinsey and Company, How can improve its healthcare its primary health care system to better deal with chronic disease?, Background paper prepared for the Primary Health Care Advisory Group, 215 s funding model is built almost entirely on fee-for service, similar to and. Other countries have a much more mixed model, with the having the strongest focus on capitation.

13 Business Council of October has lower child vaccination rates than comparator countries ranks 8th for vaccination rates of children aged around one against diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis, and ranks 6th for vaccination rates of children against measles. Figure 21: Childhood vaccinations (a) Proportion of children vaccinated against diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis, (b) Proportion of children vaccinated against measles, Source: accessed 19 October 215 Source: OECD.Stat, Source: accessed 19 October has lower rates for selected cancer screening than other countries Secondary prevention seeks to identify and interrupt disease at an early stage. ranks seventh on the proportion of women aged 2-69 receiving screening for cervical cancer, and sixth on the proportion of women aged 5-69 receiving mammography screening.

14 Business Council of October Chronic disease is not always treated effectively in the community Effective chronic disease management can mostly be delivered in the community via primary care. However, people with chronic diseases can deteriorate quickly when primary care is ineffective, and may require hospital admission. Figure 23 confirms that a significant proportion of chronic disease care expenditure occurs in hospital settings. Figure 23: Allocated health expenditure on the most expensive six disease groups, by disease group and area of expenditure, Cardiovascular Oral health Mental disorders Musculoskeletal Injuries Neoplasms Disease expenditure ($m) Hospital admitted patient services Out-of hospital medical expenses Prescription pharmaceuticals Optometrical and dental services Source: Source: AIHW, AIHW, s 's Health, Health Community and public health has high rates of admission for both Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Diabetes. A high-performing system can, to a significant extent, prevent such admissions to hospital.

15 Business Council of October performs well on care effectiveness for several life threatening illnesses For life threatening illnesses, performs well on urgent care. It has the highest 5- year relative survival rate for breast cancer, and the second lowest case-fatality rate for heart attacks.

16 Business Council of October Out-of-pocket expenses in are high relative to comparator countries Many Medicare-funded health services and all PBS pharmaceuticals require a copayment. In these instances, access depends on peoples ability to pay. Figure 27 compares out-of-pocket expenses as a share of household spending. The 3.2 per cent share in is the highest of the seven countries for which data was available. Figure 27: Out-of-pocket expenses (a) Out of pocket medical spending as a share of household spending, (b) Proportion that experienced access barrier because of cost in past year % 16% 2.4% 13% 2.2% 1.5% 1.5% 1.8% Out-of-pocket medical spending as a share of household consumption (%) 4% 22% 21% Share of population 2.9% 37% Source: OECD, Health at a Glance 213 and The Commonwealth Fund, International Health Policy Survey 213 s performance on safety in healthcare is not strong on several measures Figure 28 illustrates the rate of foreign body left in during procedure (a sentinel event for which internationally comparable data is available). has the second highest rate of the six nations.

17 Business Council of October Appropriate Care One method of assessing the appropriateness of care is to examine practice variation. A 214 OECD study found that has high age-standardised rates of several procedures relative to other countries (e.g. knee replacement), and a high level of incountry variation relative to other countries for several activities (e.g. hospital medical admissions).
