The NDIS are now sharing a monthly one-page visual snapshot, which provides year-on-year comparisons for the following statistics: 

  • How many participants are in the Scheme
  • The average annualised level of payment per participant
  • Overall amounts of NDIS payments to participants. For example the April 2022 report shows that the ‘year to date paid support to participants’ is up 20% from last year.

Other data sources 

 

Beyond these monthly summary reports, the NDIS holds a vast amount of valuable data for health providers. This link will take you to the main data dashboard, and from there you can search through the following data sources:

 

 

    • Participants per provider
    • Provider concentration
    • Provider growth and shrinkage
    • Utilisation
    • Choice and control.

More information

Given vast amounts of data can become a little abstract; here are some other ways to bring its relevance back to your role. 

  • See what the NDIS demand is like in the area you work in. Head to the NDIS demand map. This map also includes likely 2023 forecasts for your area (note that it is in BETA mode right now). 
  • Learn more information about any NDIS data sets that you have questions about, by contacting scheme.actuary@ndis.gov.au
  • Access information for providers on disability related health supports, which includes a section on podiatry, wound and pressure care supports (see pages 5 and 6). 
  • Explore why such data may be relevant for future planning by watching this explainer video. On this page you can download state-based presentations that show the growth curve of providers in your state over a period of years, as well as market data on what types of assistance is being required by Scheme participants. This information is a little out of date, last published in October 2019, but the insights are still useful. 
  • If you have any questions relating to this article, or about the NDIS more broadly, reach out to our advocacy team at advocacy@podiatry.org.au
