New Feature - Using PatientChase to target patients needing medication reviews!

26th Apr 2021

It is now possible to use PatientChase to target patients who are showing in EMIS as needing a review of their medications.

Pick a specific medication or pick a combination of medications. Naturally PatientChase will produce patient-centric results, meaning you will be presented with the medication reviews that apply to each patient. You can then target the patient once and review all their medications at the same time.

Or use the neat summary to share with a clinician such as a pharmacist so that they can review the patient's medication before contacting the patient.

The most useful and user friendly software that I have encountered in over 30 years of working with management systems.

Cheryl Barton, Data Manager – Bramblys Grange Medical Practice, Hampshire

I am so glad that we as a practice have purchased PatientChase – it has completely revamped our recall system, has been invaluable during flu recall season and more importantly shows us where the ‘holes’ are when we get to near the end of the QoF year. Many thanks!

Jackie Hogg, Clinical Data Manager – The Baffins Surgery, Portsmouth

PatientChase is an excellent product of which I think as soon as you purchase it you will ask yourself ‘how ever did I cope without it?!

Rachel Mardlin, Health Informatics Facilitator – Sheffield University Health

This product will make my QOF staff member’s job so much simpler and is a quarter of a QOF point for me

GP, Newcastle

This is exactly what we’ve been looking for

PatientChase is extremely user friendly and the support provided by PatientChase has been excellent

By using PatientChase, what would normally have taken half a day has just taken 10 minutes!

We use PatientChase and find it invaluable, it saves a lot of time and helps us organise our work effectively

As a practice we have relied upon PatientChase to streamline our patient recall system for several years now. I consider this an essential tool
