EMIS is confirmed as the most cost-effective GP information system under the GPSoC framework

EMIS : 08 January, 2008  (New Product)
A new pricing schedule published by Connecting for Health indicates that the EMIS GP information system is the most cost-effective available under the GPSoC framework.
An annual software license for any EMIS system - currently used by around 56 per cent of GPs in the UK - costs 3,350, compared to more than 5,466 for the most expensive system listed on the GPSoC schedule. This represents a saving of 39 per cent.

EMIS's annual software license is also 27 per cent cheaper than the closest competitor system in price; the annual cost of this system is 4,576.

The figures are taken from Connecting for Health's GPSoC Suppliers' Services and Pricing spreadsheet, published on the CfH website. The prices will underpin all contracts signed under the new GPSoC framework agreement.

Sean Riddell, healthcare managing director of EMIS, said: 'These figures confirm that EMIS offers unrivalled value for money for GP practices and PCTs and ultimately, of course, for the taxpayer.”

'Not only that, but as the market-leading system, EMIS also offers an exceptional range of services to support GPs and improve patient care - including value-added extras such as our award-winning online and digital TV appointment booking service.'

Riddell added: 'I welcome the publication of these figures, which for the first time enable a full and transparent comparison of the cost of different GP systems.

'This information is essential if practices and PCTs are to exercise an informed choice of GP system. It is disappointing that the costs of LSP GP systems are not similarly published.'
