Feedback sought on Practice Incentive Program Indigenous Health Incentive review


29th April 2019

The Department of Health is currently undertaking a review of the Practice Incentives Program Indigenous Health Incentive (PIP IHI). The review aims to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the PIP IHI to support general practices to provide culturally appropriate health care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with chronic disease.

The PIP IHI was introduced in 2010 to promote best practice, culturally safe care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with chronic disease in mainstream GP practices, while also supporting the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health sector.

The Department is seeking submissions from organisations and individuals to understand how the PIP IHI works on the ground for clinics, clinicians and consumers. The feedback received will help the Department to: identify potential gaps and barriers in the current PIP IHI; and consider options to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the PIP IHI.

This Consultation Paper provides an overview of how the PIP IHI works and invites your views on the PIP IHI opportunities for improvement. Send submissions to: indigenousphcpolicy@health.gov.au or post to Primary Health, Data and Evidence Branch, Indigenous Health Division, Department of Health, MDP 750, GPO Box 9848, Canberra ACT 2601 by 10 June.
