8 in 10 practices opt for new PIP

Press/Media: Expert Comment

Description

Nearly all eligible practices have signed up for the new Quality Improvement practice incentive, the RACGP’s GP19 annual conference has heard.

This is despite warnings from high-profile GPs about “unacceptable risks” to privacy.

Quality Improvement (QI) is the latest addition to the Practice Incentives Program (PIP).

It involves practices sending de-identified patient data to primary health networks (PHNs), using automated data extraction tools embedded in their clinical software.
