Commissioning

Commissioning takes place when treatments are prescribed, at that point the system calculates the price of the treatment based on specific fee/tariff/tax rates of the treatment provider. Once submitted the appropriate documentation is produced and the treatment sent to the appropriate provider, electronically or by mail.

 Treatment catalog  All treatments and products are held in a catalogue, together with information on their suppliers, price, tax rates and much more.

 Complex treatments  –  Where the specification of a treatment requires detailed specifications, then such specifications can be added to the catalogue so that the ordering clinician is required to define all the required parameters.

 Authorisation Authorisation rules can be defined to ensure that all treatments commissioned are correctly authorised before a commitment is given.

 Data Security –  All commissioning documentation can be tailored for the end user so as to ensure that all information governance policies are adhered to.

 Financial Information – The commissioning costs can be analysed down to the cost of patient episodes of care and each appointment. Such information is also available by the supplier.

 Purchasing Information – Information is held on all approved suppliers, their treatments and products.

 Logistics – Where treatments or products are ordered, the progress of fulfilling the order can be tracked. 

Efficient and easy to perform  process – The entire process is initiated when patient treatment is ordered and largely automated thereafter.

Real time information – Clinicians, administrators and suppliers can be made aware of the treatment order information instantaneously.

Elimination of duplication – No need to transfer data to into different forms and letters as everything is produced from a single set of data records.

Financial control  – On-line information on financial commitments, authorisations and approvals.

Greater accuracy – Mandatory and validated data entry fields ensure that data is collected accurately.

Better reporting – Greater accuracy combined with a powerful report writer, leads to better reporting.

Security – Access to appointment and all related information is controlled through high levels of security, which not only limits access to the system but also what the user is allowed to see.
