Change fatigue: AAPM rejects timeframes for PCEHR meaningful use

The Australian Association of Practice Management (AAPM) has come out strongly against proposed changes to the eHealth Practice Incentive Program (ePIP) which would link the payment to 'meaningful use' of the PCEHR, saying the timeframes are far too tight in light of the numerous reviews the government has launched into primary care.

In its submission to the Department of Health's discussion paper on changes to the ePIP, which canvassed linking payments to use of the PCEHR or shared health summary (SHS) upload targets, the AAPM said it fully supports the intent of the discussion paper in terms of promoting the active and meaningful use of the system, to be renamed My Health Record, but that it also has “serious concerns” about the proposed mechanisms.
