Richard Freeman features in a recent article published by the FT Advisor

Medi2data’s CEO, Richard Freeman shares his thoughts and expertise in a recent article published by the FTAdvisor, titled ‘GP delays over insurance cause ‘real suffering’.

A thought provoking article that explains how Medi2data are addressing and combatting delays in insurance claims and processing through our innovative technology.

Freeman said there is often a disconnect between insurers and GPs – and it is not always the GP’s fault when it comes to providing the necessary information for either applications or claims.

Quite often, it is the sheer burden of paperwork on GPs.

According to Freeman, Medi2data provides a way of cutting down that admin time by using a series of template forms for each insurer that can automatically pull the patient’s relevant data and populate the form with the right information needed for that insurer.

Medi2data Charity for 2021 – Glaucoma UK

We are delighted to announce that Medi2data has selected to support Glaucoma UK as its chosen charity for the festive season 2021.

This choice was a simple one, as it was not down to an employee’s suggestion but from understanding their own circumstances which led to the decision.

Jessica Sydenham joined us in January 2021 and has been part of our eMR+ team in Cardiff.

Jess lives her daily and working life dealing with congenital glaucoma which earlier this year required her to undergo surgery in order to treat.

You can read Jess’ story which appears as ‘your story’ on the Glaucoma UK website: 

We try to support organisations close to the hearts of our team members and chosen by them.

2021’s charity of choice went way beyond a selection process, as Glaucoma UK continues to support one of our very own, Jess, who has been an absolute inspiration in how she is dealing with the effects of this congenital disease in her everyday living and working life.

Richard Freeman

Please take a moment to familiarise yourself with this disease and if you can make a small contribution, we know the Charity would be incredibly grateful.

Glaucoma UK has expressed gratitude to Medi2data for our festive donation and also to Jessica for nominating Glaucoma UK for our designated charity. They have also left us a note as below:

“Jessica has been very supportive of Glaucoma UK and is an amazing advocate of Glaucoma – her story is even included on our website: Jessica’s story – Glaucoma UK. We are absolutely delighted that you have all chosen Glaucoma UK. Not only will it help raise awareness: Glaucoma is a complicated disease and diagnosis is not always easy and the more awareness we can raise and the earlier the diagnosis the better the outcome. But your support could help to save someone’s sight.

We are the only UK charity specialising in glaucoma and we are 100% funded by voluntary donations. Your support will help us to raise awareness of glaucoma, provide advice and support to people living with glaucoma in the UK, and fund research into better diagnosis, care and treatment.” – Glaucoma UK

I have undergone over 10 surgeries growing up to maintain my Glaucoma, so that it is now at a stable level. Without this treatment, I wouldn’t be so fortunate now!

I’d like to say to anyone who are currently undergoing multiple surgeries, you can come out in the end feeling better and that the treatment and surgeries do work and are worth having!

Patient access to records via NHS app delayed until April next year

Plans to enable patient access to GP records via the NHS app will be delayed until April 2022, the BMA has told Pulse.

It follows the BMA writing to NHSX expressing their concerns about the timing of the rollout.

NHS Digital had announced in October that patients whose practices use TPP will be first to have access to new entries in their GP notes through the NHS App from December – with EMIS practices to follow next year.

In a GPC email bulletin sent to GPs earlier this month, the BMA said it was ‘seeking a pause’ on the rollout to ‘ensure the views of the profession are better represented’, and that ‘the programme is delayed until there is appropriate time to work through our concerns’.

In its most recent primary care bulletin, NHS England said the change was made ‘in response to issues raised by general practices’.

NHS England said: ‘We appreciate that further time is needed to prepare systems and staff for the changes and to provide training on ensuring sensitive information is safely hidden from patient view as it’s entered on systems. This change is now planned to occur from April 2022 and will apply to all practices using TPP and EMIS systems.’

Dr Anu Rao, BMA GP committee IT policy lead, told Pulse: ‘We are pleased that NHSX has listened to our concerns about the programme and decided to delay the rollout until spring next year. 

‘The BMA is supportive of the principles and aims of responsible data sharing and patient access to their GP records and we will continue to work with NHSX and other stakeholders to look at the programme in detail to ensure a smooth rollout that is beneficial, useful and safe for patients, while minimising disruption to practices.’

Medi2data chosen as Clarity’s first partner

Medi2data joins the programme first, saving practices up to 18 hours of admin time a week.

We are delighted to announce that Medi2data is the first partner to join the Clarity Partner Programme. Medi2data provides completely free-to-use software for GP practices, which can save hundreds of pounds per week in admin time.

The software, eMR, creates secure, digital, GDPR-compliant Subject to Access Requests (SARs) and third-party medical reports, redacting sensitive patient data in as little as 15 minutes.

On average, GP practices will receive three SARS and four insurance requests a week, costing general practice around £85 million a year. Medi2data was chosen as Clarity’s first partner to help drive down costs, save time, and reduce the burden on practices to complete these requests. 

Clarity’s Managing Director, Tim Sewart said: “We’re delighted to be launching our new partner programme and helping to deliver trusted and reliable technology to the primary care sector and the NHS, something that can be hard to come by. 

Working with Medi2data as our first partner is a natural fit, as we know one of the biggest headaches for practice managers is processing third party medical reports – and redacting sensitive data is time consuming and expensive. We hope that by partnering with Medi2data, we can help GP practices around the country save precious time and money.

Tim Sewart, Clarity’s Managing Director

Richard Freeman, Founder and CEO of Medi2data said: “We’re excited to be working with Clarity Informatics and be the first firm to be picked for their new partner programme to help practices across the country to have easier access to our technology. 

“We’re passionate about helping GP practices save time, money, and ease the pressure on them, whilst remaining GDPR Compliant – that’s why our technology is completely free to use, and any associated costs don’t fall on the GP Practices so they can focus on the things that matter.” 

Medi2data featured in Corporate Advisor article

Medi2data’s CEO and Founder Richard Freeman shares his insight into access to medical data and how technology can enable efficient reporting, in a recent Corporate Adviser article.

Technology now exists – with an electronic medical reporting (eMR) platform – that cuts the turnaround time of supplying medical reports right down from 35 to five days. Technology enables more client/patient involvement, as clients can authorise data sharing more quickly and with transparency.

‘TPP customers have had to wait a long time for this day to finally arrive and we are just delighted to welcome those 2,500 customers, for whom life in their practice is going to change. It will be our absolute pleasure to provide our high-standard professional services and allow our new SystmOne customers to concentrate on running their busy practices.’
