We have previously announced in February that we have acquired the IM1 Pairing Integrations with GP clinical systems.
As of today, Healthera Fast Track is now live with GP’s using EMIS for their clinical systems – which is over 50% of the GP’s across the UK. Coverage for the remaining 50% is just around the corner.
For our beloved Healthera App users who manage their repeat prescription orders and medication intake, you will see a Fast Track option on the App Home Page. Clicking on this will take you through a set of instructions to acquire your Linkage Key and enter it in the App. You will see those instructions within the app automatically if your GP is included in this rollout. Don’t worry if you have not seen it; that means your GP will be integrated soon. More info can be found here.
For our supportive pharmacy partners, there is nothing you need to do differently. If your local GP’s use EMIS, feel free to promote this new update to your patients as this integration will drastically reduce their order waiting time! If you’d like more help promoting the app to more of your patients, please get in contact with us.
If your pharmacy is not yet on Healthera, now is the time to act! For the first time ever, an app that local pharmacies can offer to patients has access to the same integration that has been dominated by online pharmacies and GP record apps for years, and it’s a market-leading app that promotes your brand loyalty and service offerings.
We expect waiting times to reduce dramatically for patients who order their prescriptions through this method, allowing you to serve your patients quicker and get the medicines to their homes faster, which is ever critical during these challenging times.
We are extremely grateful for the help we’ve received from the hardworking teams at NHS Digital and EMIS Health. More so, we are thankful for our customers, partners, and other supporters that have helped us along the way. Stay tuned for more exciting developments that are coming later this year.
