Quality Payments Scheme support from PharmOutcomes for June review point

May 1, 2018

Community pharmacy contractors are now able to access support on PharmOutcomes for the Quality Payments Scheme’s June 2018 review point.

This support is available to all contractors as PSNC has agreed to use its licence to provide access to the Quality Payments Scheme framework and asthma referrals tool on PharmOutcomes.

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.

LPCs can access data on their pharmacy contractors who are using the PharmOutcomes tool for Quality Payments via their LPC dashboard.

Quality Payment criterion: asthma referrals tool

The PharmOutcomes asthma referrals 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). If an email address is not held for a GP practice, the provider will be alerted to send the referral securely by other means

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 has not used PharmOutcomes before, log in details can be obtained by sending a message to the PharmOutcomes helpdesk. The messaging tool can be accessed from the help tab without being logged in. Contractors will need to provide details of the pharmacy, contact information and an email address to issue the login details to.
