GPs double e-record uploads after PIP changes

The stick-over-carrot plan to save the MyHealth Record system appears to have resulted in twice as many practices uploading shared health summaries since new e-health PIP incentives were brought in.

In April, a month before practices were required to upload shared health summaries for 0.5% of their full-time equivalent patient workload, 798 practices uploaded almost 11,000 of the documents.

In May, this had almost doubled to 1520 practices uploading some 23,000 summaries.
