Practice Incentive Program
The PIP Quality Improvement (QI) Incentive commences 1 August 2019.
It is a new payment to practices who participate in activites that support continuous quality improvement in patient outcomes and the delivery of best practice care.
There are two components required to qualify for the PIP QI Incentive payment:
PARTICIPATE IN CONTINUOUS QUALITY IMPROVEMENT
The PIP QI Incentive will reward practices for participating in continuous quality improvement activities in partnership with PHN. Practices may undertake quality improvement activities that focus on specified Improvement Measures. There are no set targets for the Improvement Measures. Practices can also choose to focus their activities on other areas. These areas must be informed by their clinical information system data and meet the needs of their practice population.
PROVIDE DE-IDENTIFIED DATA TO PHN
General practices must provide a de-identified PIP Eligible Data Set to PHN. Our PHN will use the de-identified data to provide feedback to you every quarter. This will help you identify key priority areas and quality improvement activities to work towards.
