EPS Release 2 – Are You Ready?
Message Dynamics allows your PMR system to automatically generate voice and text messages on your behalf, allowing you to provide valuable information to your patients. You can simply voice message or text your patients to remind them when their prescription is due and inform them when it is ready to collect. Message Dynamics gives you a simple way to build patient loyalty, helping you to secure nominations for EPS release 2.
For pharmacies that have the correct smartcards in place, it is currently taking an average of seven weeks for to complete an order, this includes training pharmacy staff and working with NHS Connecting for Health to process the golden script which triggers your £1000 payment. Unfortunately we are unable to fast-track orders so if you wait for your local GP to go live before ordering EPS release 2 you risk not being ready in time and losing nominations to your competitors.
For EPS release 2 everybody in your pharmacy who will be using the PMR system to dispense scripts will need to have their own smartcards. Pharmacists and locums should have role R8003 with activities B0572 and B0825 and technicians should have role R8008 with activity B0572 only. Our sales team can check your smartcards for you and advise you if you need to take any action. To take advantage of this service simply call 0844 630 2002 and select option 1 for the sales team.
Our EPS release 2 training programme includes modules on business processes, nominations and dispensing, and uses a combination of independent study, training presentations and webinar training which has been approved by NHS Connecting for Health.
