In recognition that general practices, Aboriginal Medical Services and Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations across the nation have been impacted by COVID-19, the Department of Health and Services Australia have undertaken work to implement a number of temporary measures under the Practice Incentives Program (PIP) and Workforce Incentive Program (WIP) to help ensure business continuity.
The PIP QI Incentive commenced on the 1st August 2019. You can now register for the PIP QI Incentive through HPOS using your Provider Digital Access (PRODA). Once you have registered for the PIP QI Incentive, please fill in our survey to let Gold Coast Primary Health Network (GCPHN) know your PIP Practice Identifier.

General practices wishing to participate in the PIP QI Incentive will work with their local Primary Health Network to implement quality improvement activities that support their role in managing patient health.
