Health officials are urging anyone who is eligible but has not yet had a vaccine or booster in the past six months, to get one – particularly people over the age of 75, who are more at risk from serious disease.
GPs are currently being presented with new information about a possible further vaccination programme in the Autumn, and as situations continue to change, now is a good time to be mindful of the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) Indicators which carry a deadline, and how digital tools are continuing to support practices as they continue with the vaccination programme.
Maintaining practice income
QOF is a system designed to remunerate general practices for providing good quality care to their patients, and to help fund work to further improve the quality of health care delivered.
Although QOF is a voluntary process for all surgeries in the UK, its return this year has meant that being aware of and complying with all its rules is important for maintaining practice income.
Empowering healthcare professionals
Mjog by Livi supports general practice with industry-leading software that empowers healthcare professionals to give their patients the best possible health outcome and, in turn, make the QOF process more efficient.
Since QOF was reintroduced earlier this year, Mjog by Livi has been working with practices across the UK to help hit their QOF targets, through engaging remote messaging and appointment reminders.
In fact, we help more than 4,000 practices engage with patients every day, through our intuitive, flexible, and scalable solution.
Our industry-leading batch messaging system allows a practice to target groups of patients with specific information and treatment pathways, and gives you the freedom to schedule messages up to a year in advance.
Our appointment reminders are flexible and customisable for specific practice needs, and allow patients to rearrange or cancel if they need to.
