Find assured appointment management solutions for Primary Care Networks
From Monday 14 December 2020, participating system providers from this assured list will be available to be selected by Primary Care Networks from our Digital Care Services Framework (GPIT Futures). Costs for selected services are covered via a central call off agreement with each participating supplier.
The GP IT Futures programme is a critical enabler for taking primary care towards the requirements set out in the NHS Long Term Plan, five year framework for GP contract reform and the Digital, Data and Technology Vision. Whilst delivering safe, resilient and functionally rich clinical GP systems, the most important and urgent change is to ensure that patients and the NHS can safely and securely access and share primary care data in real-time. This data connects patient care across care settings. It provides the insight to allow the NHS to be more efficient. It enables progress in medical research.
A new GP IT Futures framework, the first framework from the new Digital Care Services model, has replaced the contractual framework GP System of Choice (GPSoC), to supply IT systems and services to GP practices and associated organisations in England.
We have an exciting opportunity to establish the foundations for patients, clinicians and staff to benefit from the rapid evolution of technology and insights from data.
We want to develop the GP IT market to meet growing needs in new models of care and in federated GP practices.
We are using technology and data to transform patient care in general practice. This will help to improve quality, safety and efficiency.
