For a decade the GP market for information technology in England has been dominated by a few suppliers – the new contract aims to change this position.

Discovering a product has an application for a sector you never knew existed creates a frisson of excitement when your job is business development.
I am currently selling Vision Community patient record systems into primary care but I never thought it would be useful for the pharmaceutical sector until we were approached by Wren Healthcare.
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.

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.

Ideas are great but in the complex world of healthcare execution is everything. What Vision is great at is solving problems that are stopping the NHS operating efficiently.
