Quality Improvement Focus Area: Proportion of patients with diabetes with a blood pressure result

As part of our commitment to use population health data to drive our work across the region, we will use the QIMs as a guide to develop focused QI activities and training for general practices within WVPHN.

Western Victoria PHN are supporting general practices across the region to improve their recording of blood pressure results for patients with diabetes in their practice software with the aim to be in line with or above national average.

As part of this drive for improvement, the practice facilitation team will support your practice with the tools and resources to undertake this QI activity to be leaders of a region wide approach to managing chronic disease prevention.

The Practice Incentive Program Quality Improvement (PIP QI) is collecting data from 95% of the eligible practices across Australia and focuses on 10 Quality Improvement Measures (QIMs).

Approximately 80 – 85% of eligible practices within WVPHN are participating in PIPQI. The PIPQI QIMs are directly connected to the health outcomes of those living in our region.
