CQC suite of clinical searches

Ardens Health Informatics Ltd have now released the suite of clinical searches for Practices and CQC inspection teams.

Please see the following link for the full article which describes the steps Practices need to take to gain access to them.

The searches are now routinely used when carrying out inspections of GP practices and are designed to focus on areas of clinical importance, reflecting the profession’s agreed shared view of quality and to contribute to a consistent regulatory approach.  The majority of the searches focus on safe prescribing, monitoring of higher risk drugs and identification of potential missed diagnoses. They identify cohorts of patients who may require further attention.

CQC are working with Ardens as part of a 12-month pilot to create, review and deliver the searches on EMIS Web and SystmOne for GP practices.  Cegedim Healthcare will be making the searches available for Vision GP practices.  The searches are available free of charge for all GP practices.

For further information, please see GP Mythbuster 12: Accessing medical records during inspections.
