RACGP steps up lobbying effort against changes to ePIP

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) has stepped up its efforts to persuade the federal government not to go ahead with proposed changes to the Practice Incentives Program eHealth incentive (ePIP), which seeks to link payments to uploading and “meaningful use” of the My Health Record (MyHR).

Repeating calls from last month's submission on the Department of Health's discussion paper on changes to the ePIP, RACGP president Frank Jones has written to Health Minister Sussan Ley saying the changes were “misaligned, ill-timed, superficial” and will not support meaningful use or improve patient care and safety.
