We’re delighted to announce an exciting new partnership between Elemental Software and Vision. The partnership is set to make it even easier for GPs using Vision, to refer patients to social prescribing hubs in their local areas and track the impact of the referral.
Focusing on a committed partnership, Vision will provide access to Elemental’s Social Prescribing platform, resulting in a pathway to patient referrals to community-based interventions and a reduction in avoidable GP appointments by providing the ability to refer patients to beneficial and non-clinical services within their community.
GPs will also be able to view the status of referrals at different stages within the patient journey, helping them to better measure and monitor the impact that social prescribing activities are having on people’s lives.
Jennifer Neff, Co-Founder of Elemental Software, said: “This partnership is the next step in making it easier for Vision GP practices to empower their patients to tackle their wider health and wellbeing related needs. With the recent focus of the benefits of social prescribing and the importance of measuring the impact of better community connections, more GPs are championing social prescribing. We are delighted to be able to extend this offering and opportunity for Vision clinicians.”
At its heart, Vision is a shared care system. Designed from the outset to make patient information and centralised appointments available across multi-speciality teams, clusters and federations. The Vision portfolio of integrated services ensures continuity of care, communication and task management for every clinician and carer along a patient’s journey.
"With shared service delivery now embedded through the creation of primary care networks, social prescribing is crucial to effective collaboration between teams as part of a shared services model. We see the integration between Vision and Elemental as a key step in helping GPs and wider communities achieve essential data sharing.” Lisa Holden, Vision Partner Manager, Cegedim UK
