GP2GP roll-out is ahead of schedule

EMIS : 08 October, 2007  (New Product)
The national roll-out of GP2GP electronic record transfer software is ahead of target and as many as1,557 EMIS practices are now using the technology.
EMIS says that 992 practices are using GP2GP version 1.1, which enables records to be transferred between EMIS and InPS systems. The number is ahead of the target set by Connecting for Health for 988 EMIS practices to be trained and installed with version 1.1 by the end of September 2007.

EMIS plans to continue to upgrade the practices currently using version 1.0 over the coming months, in tandem with the ongoing roll-out to new practices.

The company is looking to deploy GP2GP v1.1 in more than 2,300 practices by the end of December 2007. That equates to 46 per cent of EMIS practices in England. Almost 300 practices are being rolled out per month.

Sean Riddell, Healthcare Managing Director at EMIS said: 'This is fantastic news and a positive result for both GPs and patients.

'To have achieved such progress is a testament to the hard work of our operations teams across the country, who are pulling out all the stops on this project.

'We are delighted that such a large number of GP practices are now able to transfer records electronically between the two major clinical system suppliers in the UK. This offers major practical and clinical advantages.'
