DoH delays start date of quality improvement PIP for another year

The implementation of the new Practice Incentive Program Quality Improvement Incentive (PIP QI) has been delayed for another year to allow general practices adequate time to prepare, despite it first being announced in the 2016 federal budget.

The incentive, which requires practices to share de-identified data extracted from their clinical software on certain chronic illnesses as well as vulnerable and high risk groups, was originally designed to simplify the PIP by combining seven existing incentives covering asthma, cervical screening, diabetes, quality prescribing, aged care access, indigenous health and a procedural GP payment into one QI incentive.
