What customers say about Audit+
Audit+ in NHS Medway
Dr Peter Green, GP and Chief Clinical Officer of NHS Medway, who uses Audit + in his own practice to improve patient care and at the PCT to track performance across 56 GP practices, said:
“In the same way that satellite navigation systems have replaced the need for road maps, our new 'clinical navigation system' replaces the need for clinicians to read and absorb NICE guidelines because they are built in. The software also provides reminders of what needs to be done, applicable to individual patients, making it easier for clinicians to do the right thing at the right time for the right patient”.
Audit+ in Wales
Audit+ has been deployed nationally in Wales since 2007 to support the Data Quality Service for the Primary Care Informatics Programme and has been used to provide daily monitoring of H1N1 outbreaks. Audit+ has been installed at nearly 500 Welsh sites, analysing details on 2.7 million patients. Simon Scourfield, Primary Care Informatics Lead, NHS Wales Informatics Service, who has implemented Audit+ in General Medical Practices across Wales said:
“Audit+ has been an essential tool to support NHS Wales in delivering key initiatives throughout General Medical Practice. Audit+ was implemented as a support tool for General Medical Practices and as a by-product the whole of NHS Wales has benefitted through centralised reporting within Audit Web. Audit+ has provided NHS Wales with a standard platform to enable comparison of data across different clinical systems which has proven to be invaluable e.g. during the pandemic Swine flu outbreak in 2009 where daily reporting was achievable from practices due to automated reporting which meant practices could concentrate on patients rather than any bureaucratic processes whilst the Communicable Disease Surveillance Centre could effectively monitor the incidence of suspected Swine flu cases. Other key initiatives supported in Wales include seasonal flu vaccination reporting, Diabetes DES reporting, INR monitoring DES (plus other DES’s), data quality initiatives etc. Such is the success of Audit+ in Wales that there is a constant demand for new modules to support initiatives due to the fact that it makes General Practices lives easier whilst providing invaluable data to support reporting, commissioning etc”.
