Description:Help on this term

The PIP Eligible Data Set is the data that general practices provide to their local PHN for the purposes of the PIP QI Incentive.

The PIP Eligible Data Set is de-identified patient data, aggregated at the practice level that can be analysed by the demographic and clinical factors specified in the PIP Eligible Data Set Data Governance Framework.

It is comprised of only those fields required to:

• Calculate the PIP QI 10 improvement measures and

• Conduct approved analysis (such as sex and age) in accordance with the PIP Eligible Data Set Data Governance Framework (see Principle 4).

The PIP Eligible Data Set is predominantly made up of derived fields, or flags, that are used to determine the proportions of clients shown in each report. The below table demonstrates which data elements the PIP Eligible Data Set includes.
