Practice Management System (PMS) suppliers

Showing the current position of PMS suppliers.

We sent technical specifications to all known practice management system (PMS) suppliers, and those multiple companies with in-house systems, to allow them to plan upgrades to their systems.

We appreciate that for a variety of reasons, including resourcing commitments, existing development timetables and technology/infrastructure refreshes, not all PMS systems are eOphthalmic-enabled from day one of the system going live.

We are running an accreditation scheme to indicate which PMS's are ready for electronic transmission of claims.

Systems we know will be carrying out the upgrade work and which have provided timescales are listed below. Any supplier not listed should be contacted directly.

The current position of the PMS suppliers, as at 02/05/2017, who have committed to developing their systems and indicated timescales is:

^PMS integrated solution demonstrates a full integration to the eOphthalmic Web Service, including GOS1, GOS3, GOS4 and patient detail request operations. This option will provide the best user experience for practice staff, as there is no need to switch between the PMS and Ophthalmic Web Form to add additional GOS claim information.

^^PMS to web form 'query-string' solution-this solution can be considered to be a step towards achieving full accreditation. It will provide a facility to send data to the ophthalmic web form and minimise the requirement to add any additional data to the web form. This is restricted to GOS1 only.

Once practice management systems are in place, they can be used to submit claims electronically. In the meantime, the web form is available.
