Practice Incentives Program Quality Improvement Incentive

The Practice Incentives Program Quality Improvement Incentive is available to PIP registered general practices from 1 August 2019. 

The incentive is a payment to general practices for participating in continuous quality improvement activities to improve patient outcomes and deliver best practice care in partnership with their PHN. Check eligibility criteria here

There are two components a general practice needs to meet to qualify for a PIP QI Incentive payment:

  1. Participate in continuous quality improvement
  2. Provide the PIP eligible data set to your local Primary Health Network on a regular basis

These seven incentives do not change:

  • eHealth Incentive
