AGPA wants 12-month delay to PIP QI uploads

The Australian General Practice Alliance (AGPA) is recommending to its members that they write to the Department of Health to seek a 12-month extension on uploading patient data sets for the Practice Incentive Program Quality Improvement (PIP QI) incentive.

AGPA says it remains concerned about data governance, security of patient and practice records and a lack of clear instructions for securing patient consent for data use despite DoH having released a fact sheet (PDF) last week attempting to clarify data governance arrangements.
