The Practice Incentives Program (PIP) eHealth Incentive aims to encourage general practices to keep up to date with the latest developments in digital health and adopt new digital health technology as it becomes available. It aims to help practices improve administration processes and patient care.
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.
