Recently launched two-way integration of Proscript Connect PMR system and PharmOutcomes has enabled the pharmacists to provide NHS vaccination service without switching between the two systems during the consultations.
Once the vaccine is administered, the product can be pre-populated in the patient’s PMR record, based on the consultation data entered into PharmOutcomes.
The new system integration has allowed the pharmacists to reduce the need for duplicate data entry and the risk of typing errors.
It has supported the pharmacists to improve the processing of payments for commissioned services.
Commenting on the integration between the two systems, Mike Patel, superintendent pharmacist in South London said: “It has been beneficial for identifying shielded patients, it’s been a lot simpler.
“We didn’t have to waste time checking which ones were shielding, because we could see at a glance. You are not scrolling from page to page to find the additional information you need.”
