AMA Submission on the PIP Indigenous Health Incentive Review

7 Jun 2019

The AMA submission on the PIP Indigenous Health Incetive Review details opportunities to improve the PIP IHI, including streamlining the PIP IHI registration, modifying the payment model to better support access to and delivery of high-quality chronic disease care, and using data to drive quality. Cultural competency of health service staff could also be improved through training that is tailored to local community contexts. Any changes to the PIP IHI must ensure that the specific health needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are met, and that health providers are supported to provide high quality patient care.
