DoH defends PIP QI program design, data security arrangements

The Department of Health has defended the design of the Practice Incentives Program Quality Improvement incentive (PIP QI) following criticism by a doctors' group, saying it was developed and agreed through an advisory group comprised of the major primary healthcare peak associations.

The PIP QI, which opened for registrations today and can be worth up to $50,000 a year for participating practices, involves practices working with their local primary health network (PHN) on quality improvement exercises, as well as agreeing to upload de-identified data about the proportion of their patients meeting 10 different measures to their PHN every quarter.
