GPs raise “major concerns” over PIP QI privacy risks and operation
A group of high-profile GPs has hit out at the Quality Improvement Practice Incentive Program (PIP QI) that will be introduced tomorrow, saying there are major concerns with the program's governance and risk management and calling for a rethink of the upload of data to primary health networks (PHNs).
The Australian General Practice Alliance has issued a paper outlining its concerns, saying that the use of intermediary organisations such as PHNs as well as data extraction software vendors introduces “significant risk and complexity regarding data governance, privacy and confidentiality”.
