Amendment to the Practice Incentives Program eHealth Incentive
The Department of Health has issued a statement about a temporary amendment to the eligibility requirements for the Practice Incentives Program eHealth Incentive (ePIP).
Under the amendment, all ePIP registered practices will be able to make up any shortfall in shared health summary uploads by achieving their full accumulated requirement for the first three quarters by 31 January 2017.
This will provide practices with enough time to resolve their transitional issues and be eligible for their ePIP payment.
Any practices which opted out of the first quarter ePIP payments will also have the opportunity to catch-up and meet their shared health summary targets so that they are able to receive the full incentive.
If your practice is experiencing issues using the My Health Record, or would like further information about the changes, contact COORDINARE’s Digital Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
