A quick PIP QI update
The Practice Incentives Program (PIP) Quality Improvement (QI) Incentive started on 1 August 2019.
Under the PIP QI Incentive, general practices work with their local Primary Health Network (PHN) to undertake continuous quality improvement activities through the collection and review of practice data on specified improvement measures.
In the North Brisbane and Moreton Bay region 197 practices have registered to receive the PIP QI payment.
With the PIP QI Incentive payment now in place, the PHN will continue to act as a regional data custodian and store de-identified practice data in accordance with the data governance guidelines.
Once practices have registered for the PIP QI through Health Professional Online Services (HPOS) using their PRODA account they will need to notify the PHN as soon as possible, by contacting their Primary Care Liaison Officer.
Brisbane North PHN has developed a PIP QI fact sheet which can be accessed here.
For more information on the PIP QI or how we can support your practice in quality improvement please contact your Primary Care Liaison Officer.
