Practice Essentials Webinar Series 2023
The RACGP, in partnership with the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA), is running a series of digital health webinars in the first half of 2023.
Attendees can strengthen their capabilities in cyber security, refresh their knowledge of My Health Record and learn how Provider Connect Australia improves the quality of healthcare service information.
The first webinar is being held on 19 January and will cover key cyber security concepts including ransomware, password security, phishing scams, network and device security, and how to respond to any breaches.
Find out more and register online.
Applications open for new GP-led Respiratory Clinic Panel
The Department of Health and Aged Care is establishing the GPRCP to ensure there is sufficient surge capacity to respond to future COVID-19 waves or any other respiratory health emergencies.
The GPRCP will consist of up to 150 accredited primary care services that will be held in reserve and activated as needed during a COVID-19 or other respiratory health emergency.
During such emergencies, Panel participants will have access to a new bulk-billed MBS item for respiratory consultations and be eligible to claim a Practice Incentive Payment (PIP), equivalent to their PIP QI payment per three-month period.
Participants can still provide their usual services in conjunction with respiratory services.
Registration is open via AusTender, with practices required to submit a tender by 2 February to be considered.
