Before the end of this year, Vision is introducing a new, improved learning experience. It is modern, responsive and contains a knowledge base, a new Learning Zone and links to product-based Help Centres. It can all be accessed from anywhere with internet access and with any device, for example, a smartphone or tablet.
Vision will be sending a team to the Pulse LIVE in Glasgow on Wednesday 6 November.
Pulse LIVE is a free event for all practising, GMC-registered GPs and trainees, taking place at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead. The three streams, 'You Practice, Your Patients' and 'Your Skills' give you a chance to customise your day for your specific needs.
The Vision User Groups are hosted across the UK to support existing customers, they include free training to make sure you continue to get the most from Vision.
We have published the agenda that will provide you with an update on Vision, and what we will be covering in the free training sessions.
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.
