We have developed a wide range of essential and comprehensive policies and procedures across relevant Practice Areas which your Medical Practice can easily adopt from Day 1.
We will update our default policies and procedures on a periodic basis to reflect changes in legislation, rules, regulations, guidelines and best practice. One (or many) less things for you to worry about!
TAILOR THE PLATFORM
Whilst you will have the benefit of seeing and using our default policies and procedures, we have made it easy for you to record variations, improvements or (simply) different ways of doing things which are specific to your Medical Practice and visible to all of your staff.
Each staff member in your Medical Practice can have their own account which will enable them to login and access some or all of the Platform in line with your preferences, which can be controlled directly by you. You can appoint one or more Practice Administrators within the Platform who can record and manage content, manage your users and also utilise the Compliance Centre and Management Report.
With each staff member having access to our Platform, you will be able to demonstrate your making key information (Staff Handbook, Privacy Statement, Safety Statement etc) available to staff operating in your Medical Practice.
EDUCATION & TRAINING
Our Platform is the perfect tool for providing structured inductions, ongoing staff training and ensuring consistency of process within your Medical Practice team. We include an annual training schedule to assist with the proper implementation of policies and procedures in your Medical Practice.
Our Platform enables you to complete a detailed Management Report, which has been designed with privacy and confidentiality as key considerations. The Management Report (once completed by relevant Medical Practice staff) will provide an excellent overview of the Medical Practice for the relevant period and represents an excellent tool for General Practice Owners.
You can select some or all of the Practice Areas to include in the Management Report so you have complete flexibility. The Management Report is very well structured and easy to complete across all of the Practice Areas.
The Management Report can include details of how the Medical Practice performed during the relevant period and related information that impacted (positively or negatively) on performance in any way.
ON THE HORIZON
The Management Report can also be used to identify and record issues or developments that are planned for or expected in or which might otherwise affect the Medical Practice in the future.
We have a simple Incident Management Process to be used in the event of an incident in your Medical Practice. Your staff can follow clear steps that will help them to act, notify and report as necessary, review and analyse the incident and to complete improvement planning and monitoring.
Each member of your staff can complete a detailed and instructive Incident Report using the Platform, which has been designed with privacy and confidentiality as key considerations. Once complete, the Incident Report will be visible to a Supervisor in your Medical Practice for review and follow up.
INCIDENT REPORT REGISTER
Your Medical Practice will have a register of all Incidents in your Medical Practice which have been recorded using the Platform and which can be used for appropriate follow up. Formal Risk Assessments can also be completed using the Incident Report.
Risks are part of everyday life in a Medical Practice. Effective Risk Management is therefore essential. We have made it really easy for you to assess Risks once identified. You can calculate the Risk Rating for a particular Risk to understand whether it is an acceptable Risk or if follow up action is required.
We have a comprehensive and detailed audit tool within our Platform which enables you to complete full or partial Audits in each Practice Area in your Medical Practice and generate a corresponding Audit Report. This facilitates the identification of Risks and appropriate follow up action in a timely and effective way.
Sometimes your assessment of a Risk will require ongoing monitoring or subsequent action (treatment) to remove the Risk or reduce its potential impact. Our Platform allows you to maintain a Risk Register for your Medical Practice and to track progress.
