Ongoing focus has been maintained, encouraging those practices not yet accredited to follow best practice guidelines and become accredited. RACGP (Royal Australian College of General Practice) Standards are promoted and support provided though mock accreditations carried out on site by a qualified accreditation surveyor, who also provides ongoing resources and advise for those also wishing to reaccredit their practices.

 

Accreditation identifies quality and safety in general practice based on the Standards developed by members of the general practice profession.

 

Accreditation will help your practice increase efficiency, reduce risk and stay curent with trends and best practice.

 

Benefits include:

 

  • Improve patient safety and overall health outcomes;
  • Reduce risk in practice;
  • Improve practice efficiency;
  • Improve practice environment;
  • Increased recognition from insurance providers;
  • Access to financial incentives for general practice; and,
  • Improve staff morale, skills and professional development.

The process of accreditation recognises and rewards practices providing high quality, continuing, comprehensive and whole patient care in well organised and safe environments through the Practice Incentive Program (PIP).
