Practice Management System suppliers

All existing practice management system suppliers have engaged in the project and have committed to development.

All existing practice management system suppliers have engaged in the project and have committed to development.

The table below highlights the latest position with suppliers for the payment phase. 

Once a supplier has developed and tested their system, they must commence fit for purpose testing. At this stage, it is possible that changes may be identified and re-work required. They would then undertake fit for purpose testing again and, following success, payments business accreditation of their system would take place.

Accreditation is effectively a more complex set of business scenarios used to test practice management systems. 

Once a system has successfully completed accreditation, they will become accredited for eDental - payments phase.

This table below will be updated regularly to reflect where suppliers are in relation to fit for purpose, accreditation and roll out.

If your practice management system is nearing the point of accreditation being complete, our transition team will be in touch with you to advise of your transition date.

If you change suppliers, please let the eDental transition team know by emailing us at nss.edental-transition@nhs.net or by telephoning 0131 275 6866.

Prior approval accreditation will be carried out as a separate phase and is shown in a separate table below.
