New ‘GPAD’ Bundle Launched

New ‘GPAD’ Bundle Launched

The GPAD (General Practice Appointment Data) programme introduces standardisation of appointment data across General Practice to support more accurate analysis of activity and capacity in General Practice.

In order to support this more accurate data collection, a national list of Appointment Slot Categories has been published and GP system suppliers have added new functionality that enables practices to map local Appointment Slot Types to National Slot Categories.

The new bundle of videos includes an overview of GPAD and what it means for practices; a walk-through of how to prepare your EMIS Web systems to be ready for the new National Slot Types, and advice on how this might impact Appointment Book Management in the future.

There are four videos, totalling approximately 15 minutes.

Although practices have until March 2021 to complete the appropriate mapping, we’re making this bundle available now to help you get ahead of the game.
