Queensland Health, Clinical Excellence Queensland (CEQ)

Clinical Excellence Queensland is seeking up to ten (10) consumers to review patient information available to the public via the Health Provider Portal (HPP) website, the revised consent model whereby patients are able to opt to not have their public healthcare information available to private health practitioners, and to provide advice on marketing opportunities to ensure patients are aware of their right to opt out.

From mid-2017, Queensland General Practitioners (GPs) have had secure online access via the HPP to patient healthcare information from Queensland’s public hospitals. CEQ is currently expanding access to include private Nurses, Midwives, Specialists and Paramedics.

Purpose

Private health practitioner’s access to key public healthcare information for the patients under their care in the community, gained through the expansion of Queensland Health’s HPP, bridges the information gap between Queensland’s private health practitioners and public hospitals to help ensure patients receive consistent, timely and better coordinated care.

Role of the consumer

The role of the successful consumers will be to review HPP patient resources and the opt-out process and provide feedback and advice to CEQ via email, Teams or phone.

Who is it for?

This opportunity would suit consumers and carers:

  • who have attended a Queensland public hospital
  • who have had follow-up appointments with a GP or private health practitioner within the last 12 months.

Time and location

Consumers will be asked to provide feedback and advice via email, Teams or phone between the dates of 23rd November to 11th December.

Remuneration and Support

Consumers will be remunerated for their time in line with Health Consumers Queensland’s remuneration position statement.

$40 per hour including preparation time for each consultation. Consultations will be via email, Teams or phone.
