Practice Incentives Program Quality Improvement Incentive: What practices need to know Fact Sheet August 2019

Why is there a new Quality Improvement Incentive under the PIP?
The new Quality Improvement (QI) Incentive under the Practice Incentives Program (PIP) aims to recognise and support those practices that commit to improving the care they provide to their patients. Participating practices will be supported to utilise the clinical information they have about their own communities and their knowledge of the particular needs of their own patients to develop innovative strategies to drive improvement.

As well as undertaking quality improvement activities, practices will share a minimum set of de- identified aggregated data with their local Primary Health Network (PHN), such as the proportion of patients who are diabetic, the proportion who smoke, the cardiovascular risk and weight profile. This information will be collated at the local level by the Primary Health Networks to assist in supporting improvement and understanding population health needs. The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) as the national data custodian will be responsible for managing the use, access and protection of data in the collated national data set.
