What is QiData
The program is designed to provide general practices with information needed to improve the assessment and management of patients who are at risk of or have chronic disease(s). It will help identify opportunities for quality improvement and better business performance.
The RACGP recognise quality improvement as an essential business activity and practices need to engage in quality improvement activities to improve quality and safety for patients. It is now a requirement in Continuous Professional Development (CPD).
According to the RACGP, quality improvement activities are underpinned by effective information management techniques that allow practices to collect and analyse practice data and make decisions for service changes based on that data. Innovative use of information technology can assist practices in performing quality improvement activities to improve the health of their practice population. Audit and quality assurance can play a significant role in ensuring that general practice delivers safe and high quality care.
