Pharmoutcomes Support for Quality Payments and Healthy Living Pharmacy
now available for LLR contractors – we encourage you to use the available platforms to track your progress and keep an electronic audit of your progress.
This support is available to all contractors as PSNC has agreed to use their licence to provide access to the Quality Payments Scheme framework and asthma referrals tool on PharmOutcomes.
Contractors who own multiple pharmacies can view the progress that each of their pharmacies are making to achieving the Quality Payment criteria by using their PharmOutcomes head office/administrator viewer login.
LPCs are able to view the progress contractors are making to achieving the Quality Payment criteria, which may help identify additional support that contractors require, by using their LPC viewer login.
Quality Payments Scheme framework
A Quality Payments Scheme framework has been created on PharmOutcomes, which will allow contractors to track their progress with achieving the Quality Payment criteria. The assessment also contains links to the PSNC website to provide contractors with additional information on each criterion and links to other PharmOutcomes services to assist contractors with collating evidence.
Once a contractor has logged into PharmOutcomes, the framework can be accessed by clicking on the ‘Assessments’ tab on the PharmOutcomes homepage.
Quality Payment criterion: asthma referrals tool
An asthma referral tool has also been created to assist contractors in meeting the Quality Payment criterion, ‘On the day of the review, the pharmacy can show evidence of asthma patients, for whom more than 6 short acting bronchodilator inhalers were dispensed without any corticosteroid inhaler within a 6 month period, are referred to an appropriate health care professional for an asthma review’.
The PharmOutcomes tool allows contractors to record patient details who have consented to be referred to their GP practice because of them having been dispensed more than 6 short acting bronchodilator inhalers without any corticosteroid inhaler within a 6 month period. When this data is saved on PharmOutcomes a referral will automatically be sent to the patient’s GP practice (if a secure email address is held for that GP practice on PharmOutcomes).
Once a contractor has logged into PharmOutcomes, the tool can be accessed by clicking on the ‘Services’ tab on the PharmOutcomes homepage.
PharmOutcomes log in details
If a contractor requires PharmOutcomes login details for one of their team members, these can be obtained by sending a message to the PharmOutcomes helpdesk. Contractors will need to provide details of the pharmacy, contact information and an email address to issue the login details to.
If a contractor does not have a head office/administrator viewer login this can be obtained by sending a message to the PharmOutcomes helpdesk. Contractors will need to provide details of pharmacy sites, contact information and an email address to issue the login details to.
