The self-screening kiosk can take the strain of routine monitoring and simultaneously contribute to QOF point collection - allowing more face-to-face appointment time for high-risk patients.
QOF is a voluntary reward and incentive programme to reward practices for the quality of care they provide and to standardise improvements in care. QOF encourages GPs to take a proactive approach to care with an emphasis on preventing ill-health by catching potential problems early. With a total of 635 points available, they are also an important source of income for GPs. You can find the 2021/22 guidance here.
Although there is QOF income on offer, GPs are currently facing intense workforce and workload pressures which have been made worse by the pandemic. Post-covid, surgeries are struggling to meet the increasing demand for appointments and are looking to new ways of working as they re-open fully. As part of re-opening, our self-screening kiosks can play an important role in managing patient flow. The self-screening kiosk can take the strain of routine monitoring and simultaneously contribute to QOF point collection - allowing more face-to-face appointment time for high-risk patients.
Our self-screening kiosks can help GPs to meet their QOF targets by allowing patients to take vital signs checks and answer health questions at a time convenient to them. The data is integrated directly into the patient record via SNOMED coding with alerts sent to the GP if parameters are breached.
Each self-screening health kiosk comes with full installation and support and is fully GDPR compliant. They are easily cleaned and require no clinician intervention to record data; let our kiosks help you to meet your QOF targets.
We have a library of Care Pathway Questionnaires which include Asthma, Diabetes, Contraception, NHS Health Check and New Patient Health Check. In a recent installation of the Self Health Kiosk we found that cost savings of £1680 were made in the first month. Read the full Cost Savings Case Study HERE.
We are also the preferred supplier of kiosks and related services to several large healthcare organisations.
How can our kiosks help with QOF?
Blood pressure why not invite all patients to take their blood pressure on arrival, results are uploaded straight into the patient record with alerts sent if parameters are breached – no need for manual entry of slips of paper!
Asthma ask your Asthma clinic patients to regularly complete pathway questions on the kiosk at a time convenient to them
Smoking status questions are included in all questionnaire pathways on the kiosk with results uploaded into the patient record
