Health and care professionals (HCPs) in Kingston, Richmond and Sutton are now able to access GP records held on Vision, from other health and care organisations whenever they need to.
Vision will be sending a team to the Kent Practice Managers Conference to talk about how Vision can support Primary Care Networks (PCNs).
The law of unforeseen consequences is ever-present. Especially when two great ideas clash.
Take for instance Population Health Management (a great idea that relies on profiling, marketing new services and great communication with patients) and privacy and data legislation (a great idea that prevents automated profiling and electronic marketing without explicit consent).
Vision gets asked to sponsor lots of events, but we’re picky. It is important to us that we move the primary healthcare agenda on and provide practical support and help the NHS to improve. That’s why we’ve decided to exhibit at the Towards Population Health Systems: What Next? at the King’s Fund on April 30th.
The move toward population health management is reinforced by commitments set out in the NHS long-term plan, but how should health systems respond?
The reclassification of Pregabalin and Gabapentin is just around the corner. Following a public consultation and advice from the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs, these gabapentinoids are to be reclassified following concerns over misuse.
In England, the national rollout of controlled drugs (CDs) in EPS started today for TPP SystmOne GP practices and will commence on Tuesday 5 March for GP practices using Vision.
Data lakes are being sold as the solution to delivering population health programmes but if you are a GP the best starting place might be your own data pool.
Every GP practice in the country is sitting on a pool of data that they have inputted, understand and trust. For a GP that might be a better starting point on their population health journey than a data lake. For professionals who are understandably cautious, a practice’s own data has the advantage of being populated with real-time information, from known contributors, with the ability to verify accuracy and completeness immediately.

When Owen Epstein and Mike Stein created Map of Medicine at the Royal Free Hospital in 2000, it represented a revolution in clinical pathway creation and dissemination. But now it is no more; general practices and hospitals around the UK are searching for a replacement.
When it was announced in July 2018 that Map of Medicine was withdrawing from the market and discontinuing support for more than 420 digital clinical decision pathways, GPs and hospital consultants went looking to find a new solution.
Ever since Map of Medicine was integrated into the National Programme for IT the tool has helped GPs and hospital doctors reduce poor referrals, inappropriate tests and flawed patient journeys.
It will be the future, not the past. Vision will be exhibiting at the National NHS Clinical Leaders Network Congress tomorrow.
With the publication of the NHS Long Term Plan in the first week of the New Year, the focus of the Congress has pivoted away from reflecting on the Five Year Forward View to concentrate on the new master plan.
Large GP practices (30,000 to 40,000 patients) will receive funding to work together to deal with the pressures of primary care by looking at hub working and creating genuinely integrated teams.
