Our QToolset has saved clinicians hours of time by optimising workflow and offering clinical decision support in EMIS Web practices through the use of smart templates with clinical pathways, auto-populating referral forms, live monitoring of data as it is typed, and advanced reporting.
Clinicians benefit as they can save time, increase practice income, and improve clinical safety.
CCGs benefit as QToolset Enterprise offers standardised custom templates, referral forms, clinical pathways, and reporting based on local and national guidance to member practices.
Data quality is an increasingly important aspect of good clinical care. Clinical Commissioning Groups use this data to help plan the use of resources and monitor contract performance. GP practice income is dependent upon accurate clinical coding.
The QToolset offers live monitoring of data as it is typed to identify coding errors when they are made.
Our advanced reporting suite assists both GPs and CCGs with contract management and helps ensure practices claim correctly for work they are undertaking. Reporting across multiple sites helps commissioners with service evaluation.
Improving clinical safety is an important aspect of our service. Our QToolset is continually checking all aspects of a patient record to help prevent mistakes. This is an area that CQC inspectors are particularly interested in.
MHRA safety alerts and NICE guidance are built into our QToolset and reduce the need for clinicians to remember the content of these important publications. When a potential safety issue arises a message is displayed with a warning and link to the relevant guidance.
QToolset Enterprise in addition offers CCGs localised safety alerts for member practices.
"We saw one area of outstanding practice: The practice were using a [QMasters] "pop up" alert for the records of patients at risk of acute kidney injury to assist with early diagnosis and intervention."

"We have increased our income by over £2,800 using just 3 areas from your QOF Data Validation Report. My Partners are also very impressed with the Unplanned Admissions DES tool which has saved us hours of work. The fact that you are both GPs and using the tools yourself in practice was a major factor we considered when deciding to subscribe to the QToolset"
Dr Mark Hazell - GP. Lydney Health Centre, Gloucestershire
