A Successful Day at the EMIS NUG 2014

The Niche Health team enjoyed a busy two days at the EMIS NUG 2014 conference last week.

We chose to launch our new iGPR – Intelligent GP Reporting software at this popular conference in order to show doctors and practice staff first-hand what a revolutionary addition the iGPR software will be.

The stand was incredibly busy and the team are busy liaising with the many delegates who requested information and expressed interest in adopting the new software as soon as possible.

One of the key features of iGPR is that it is provided to GPs and indeed the NHS at no cost.  Insurers and requesting third parties are charged a fee to connect to iGPR.  It is this information that has proved difficult for some to digest.  In fact installations, software, remote training and support are all provided at no cost to the NHS and delegates were both impressed by this and the software demonstrations.  The speed and accuracy of the report making process was clear to see.

The Niche team had the opportunity to listen to some very inspiring presentations across the two days and we look forward to the EMIS NUG conference in 2015!

noteSpace Case Study: Skyways Medical Centre

The latest customer to realise the benefits of noteSpace is the Skyways Medical Centre in Heston. Ramanjot Dhaliwal contacted us to discuss removal of the practices 4500 records.

Until recently, doctors at Skyways had preferred to access paper based records when consulting with patients instead of accessing records via the computer system. As a result there was always a need for all medical records to remain on-site.

Recent changes however have seen Doctors embracing IT within the practice, the possibilities of records removal have become apparent and practice staff would like to use Niche’s noteSpace software to manage the flow of records for collection or delivery to Skyways. The practice recognises that security is enhanced using this method as records are stored in the NHS approved storage facility which is regional to the premises and is in line with CQC requirements.

Currently Nursing Home patient records are stored in a separate room due to the large size of the documents and other medical records are stored in cabinets in the reception area.

NoteSpace will be adopted primarily to create space. A new consulting room will be provided allowing the practice to expand the services it is able to offer.
