Here's how to search in Vision to see the number of appointments that have been booked via the online services, and also how to see how many patients have requested a registration token for online services, and how many people have actually completed their registration.
We all have had the situation where you want people not to prescribe a certain drug.
Isn’t it frustrating when you have lots of normal appointment slots but no phone appointments.
You want to confirm that your QOF extraction is on its way to CQRS, but where do you look in Vision to check that?
Have you ever started typing up a visit and realised it was being recorded as a surgery consultation?
How often are you caught out by the patient being on a drug prescribed in the hospital and you do not have it recorded in Vision?
Getting prevalence correct is very important to maximise QOF income - points are increased in value for practices with higher than average prevalence. Here is how you can easily look at your practice prevalence within Vision, compare this to the national average, and see how much your practice could earn for each disease area.
Have you got a patient who has an outstanding indicator in the Vision plus box, but it looks like they have had everything done that is needed for that disease area? There is now a quick way to find out why the indicator is not passing for QOF. At this time of year, it is vital that you capture as much QOF data as possible, so read on to find out how you can quickly find out why an indicator is not passing, so that you can rectify this before the end of the year.
NVUG Advice to members
It can be relatively easy in Vision to search for anyone taking a specific drug item. However, it can also be useful to find all patients taking a particular family of drugs, independent of what preparation or strength. For example this might be useful for an audit of antibiotic usage. How can we do this easily without having to create a big list of drug items in the search criteria?
