Practice Incentives Programme
The Practice Incentives Program (PIP) is aimed at supporting general practice activities that encourage continuing improvements and quality care, enhance capacity, and improve access and health outcomes for patients.
To be eligible to participate in the PIP, a practice must be accredited or registered for accreditation, against the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) Standards for general practices.
PIP is administered by the Department of Human Services on behalf of the Department of Health and Ageing (DoHA).
Over recent times PIP has included in excess of a dozen different incentives. Practices can apply for as many as they are eligible for. These different incentives include: Quality Prescribing, Diabetes Management, Cervical Screening, Asthma Management, Indigenous Health, Teaching, GP Aged Care Access and eHealth.
- For more detail on the administration of PIP and the incentives available please refer to the DHS Website.
- For more information regarding ePIP Registration Support refer to Registration Support.
- In order to meet the PIP eHealth Incentive requirements, practices must ensure that their software systems are compliant. This is achieved by practices consulting the PIP eHealth Product Register.
