The PAT CAT PIP QI Essentials module provides information on PIP QI compliant practices, allows PHNs to flag participating practices and to manage reminders and reports relating to PIP QI compliance.


The module is accessed from the main PAT CAT screen by clicking on the PAT PIP QI menu icon. This will open the PIP QI module with reports depending on your licence.



Practices need to be flagged as enrolled in PIP QI in your PAT CAT to show in this view - please check Enrol Practices in PIP QI for full details. If a practice is not flagged as enrolled in PIP QI in your PAT CAT, their upload won't be shown as PIP QI Compliant!




Before the PIP QI module loads, the following warning is displayed; clicking on 'Proceed' will load the module.


There are a number of important differences between the PIP QI view and the standard PAT CAT view. Here is a summary of the differences:

  • On the top left PIP QI is displayed:



  • The extract panel shows data by PIP QI quarter, at least one upload per quarter is required to show a green number:



  • Only practices indicated as enrolled in PIP QI are showing in the 'Practices' filter. All information shown on the practice filter and in the report is always based on the PIP QI quarter selected!
  • The practice status is colour coded:
    • Green dot + red text = compliant extract submitted BUT extract was excluded by the PHN
    • Orange dot + green text = non pip compliant extract submitted AND extract is included
    • Orange dot + red text = non pip compliant extract submitted BUT extract was excluded by the PHN
    • Green text only = compliant extract submitted AND extract is included
    • Red text only = no extract received

The PIP QI module has limited/different reports from the standard PAT CAT interface. The PIP QI Essentials described here shows one report on the PIP QI submission status of the enrolled practices in your catchment:


This report is based on the selected PIP QI quarter (Aug-Oct, Nov-Jan,...) and takes the exclusion period from the 15th of the last month in the quarter into account. Only practices flagged as enrolled to PIP QI are considered for this graph.

The following categories are available in the report:

  • 'Has Submitted and is PIP Compliant' - practices who are enrolled and have submitted data in the current quarter
  • 'Has Submitted and is Not PIP Compliant' - practices who are enrolled and have submitted data in the current quarter prior to being enrolled in PAT PIP QI. PEN CS is currently reviewing this to create a quick way to update these practices.
  • 'Not Submitted' - practices who are enrolled and have not submitted data during the current quarter
