GP clinical searches for CQC Inspections
Ardens Healthcare Informatics have been chosen by the CQC to deliver standardised searches as part of its inspections of GP practices.
Ardens will be making the searches available FREE from May 2022 for EMIS Web and SystmOne GP practices and Cegedim Healthcare will be making them available for Vision GP practices.
This 12-month pilot, will provide standardised searches with a focus on areas of clinical importance, good practice and MHRA safety advice and are based on national guidance.
The CQC searches have been specifically designed to identify potential significant risk and often have a degree of tolerance built into them, for example in relation to the intervals for monitoring medicines. They are not intended to be used (nor should they be) as a substitute for a practice’s own governance systems and processes for managing patient care.
