EMIS and Niche Health Announce Partnership Deal for iGPR

EMIS and Niche Health today announce a five-year partnership agreement that will see Niche Health’s ground breaking electronic insurance reporting solution iGPR (Intelligent General Practice Reporting) deployed free of charge to all EMIS GP Practices.

iGPR has been developed over a two year period in consultation with GPs and the Insurance industry to address the time consuming and ‘paper heavy’ problem of producing medical reports on behalf of patients.

The solution enables Practices to complete insurance reports in a matter of minutes managing the end to end process including report request, patient consent, report creation, automatic redaction of non-permitted information, report delivery and payment electronically.

In transforming the long standing cumbersome weekly practice task, iGPR saves substantial staff time, increases the security of patient information over existing postal arrangements and is provided to General Practices at no cost.

Andrew Wainwright, Head of Commercial Management at EMIS said: “we are happy to be working in Partnership with Niche to bring this exciting new functionality to our mutual customers.”

Speaking about the new partnership agreement Niche Health’s Managing Director Guy Bridgewater said: “Supporting GPs on their paperless journey is a key focus for Niche Health so we are delighted to be working with EMIS to deliver our ground breaking iGPR solution to all EMIS GP Practices.


No turning back

The dotted line has been signed upon, there’s no turning back now – Niche Health have joined up to take part in the London to Brighton bike ride. The 40th anniversary of Europe’s biggest cycling event takes place in June, which leaves five months for our magnificent eight to collectively get on their bikes and do some training – given that the event is fifty four miles in length and goes up the fearsome Ditchling Beacon when you’re nice and tired towards the end, some degree of training might well be in order!

The ride is organised by and in aid of the British Heart Foundation, so as well as hopefully doing our own hearts and health a bit of good, the intrepid members of Niche Health Velo Club will be doing our best to raise funds for an outstanding cause.
