The Department of Health has made a temporary amendment to the ePIP incentive to allow general practices participating in the program to upload all shared health summaries to the My Health Record by January 31 2017.
For practices that opted out in the first quarter, they will now have the opportunity to catch up and meet their shared health summary targets so they can receive the full incentive.
For practices that do not intend to meet all ePIP requirements, the Department suggests they should withdraw from the program. This will ensure practices are not overpaid, and not faced with having to repay up to three quarterly payments.
The Department will formally communicate this arrangement to ePIP registered practices over the coming weeks.
