iGPR – Scotland Deployment

We are pleased to announce that deployment of iGPR in Scotland is now underway for all Inps Vision and EMIS practices.

Following a national risk assessment carried out by NHS National Services Scotland, iGPR has been identified as a low-risk software solution.

“Personally, I believe this to be a low risk solution and on balance it may reduce risk compared to the existing manual process since it will reduce the opportunity for human error.”
Colin Howarth, Information Security Consultant, NHS National Services Scotland.

INPS enables Electronic Insurance Reporting for Vision

INPS is delighted to announce that iGPR™, Niche Health’s revolutionary intelligent GP reporting software, is being deployed to all Vision practices over the coming months.

iGPR has been developed over a three year period in consultation with GPs, practice staff and the insurance industry to dramatically reduce the time consuming and ‘paper heavy’ process of producing medical reports on behalf of patients.

The solution enables practices to securely receive, automatically redact and complete insurance report requests electronically or where an insurer is not yet ‘iGPR-enabled’, in paper form in a matter of minutes.

In addition iGPR’s redaction engine ensures data safety when generating patient reports for a range of purposes.

It is provided at no cost to all general practices in the UK.

Managing Director of Niche Health Guy Bridgewater said ‘Easing the administrative burden placed on GPs and their staff by external organizations is our key focus at Niche Health.  We are excited to be working with INPS to deliver iGPR, which is completely changing the way third parties interact with UK general practice’.

For a full demonstration of the features of iGPR, please watch the iGPR Walkthrough video on the Niche Health website here. The iGPR team can be reached Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 5.30pm on 01527 570005.

Guidance on Insurer Requests Made Through iGPR

iGPR can support all insurance report types (GPR / PMA, SAR, Targeted Reports) requested under AMRA (Access to Medical Records Act) and SAR (Subject Access Request) regulations.

Where a practice completes an insurance report using iGPR the software enables the automatic redaction of non-permitted information, addressing the risk of excessive disclosure. Further redactions can be made by the practice where necessary.

Where a practice is unable to complete a request for any reason iGPR provides a rejection option that delivers their response to the requesting insurer, enabling them to respond directly to the practice.

In using iGPR General Practices, as data controllers, remain in complete control of any information being provided to permitted third parties and can be assured that reports will only include information that is relevant and appropriate.


In Practice Systems Limited (INPS) and Nichesys Ltd (Niche Health) Announce iGPR Partnership Agreement

INPS and Niche Health are pleased to announce a partnership agreement that will see Niche Health’s ground breaking paperless insurance reporting solution iGPR deployed to UK GP practices using the INPS Vision clinical system.

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’ burden of producing medical reports for insurers on behalf of patients.

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

iGPR saves substantial staff time, increases the security of patient information over existing postal arrangements and is provided to UK General Practices at no cost.

Max Brighton, CEO at INPS said: “iGPR is a good fit with the INPS strategy of encouraging healthcare transformation by offering solutions for the whole healthcare team. Automating the administrative burden of insurance reporting for practices will save time and improve the accuracy of the information they provide within insurance reports.’

Speaking about the partnership agreement Niche Health’s Managing Director Guy Bridgewater said: ‘We are delighted to be working with INPS to deliver iGPR to Vision users in what is another major step towards changing the way general practices manage requests from authorised third parties’
