PIP QI for General Practice. How to use Pen CS’ CAT4 to be PIP QI Compliant.

 

Be ready 1st August 2019 for PIP QI!  Pen CS has developed a suite of custom-built PIP QI software for General Practice that meets compliance, data governance and quality improvement requirements.

PIP QI is a payment for general practice to support continuous quality improvement (CQI). The ten ‘Improvement Measures’ which form PIP QI, are yet to be formally announced, but are outlined in a recent AMA article. The Improvement Measures aim to provide national, consistent de-identified and aggregated general practice data for population health management. Further explained in a recent RACGP article.

The first step for all General Practices is PIP QI Compliance. Here’s how Pen CS can help:
