Be Premier Indigo SP1 Snapshot


Enhanced Bp Comms consent and enrolment

  • As part of the enhanced Bp Comms feature, Practices must choose which electronic communication consent options they want to implement in their practice as this determines what is available for the individual patients to consent to

Enhanced SMS functionality

  • Be able to send a SMS directly from the Patient record
  • Follow-up of patient results will be made easier with the inclusion of the Bp SMS feature available in the Follow up Inbox

  • Default templates are available for each type of message

Contact notes

Best Practice launches new Commercial Partner Program

Best Practice Software enters a new era with its partners, with the launch of the Bp Partner Network.

Bp CEO Dr Frank Pyefinch said the new Bp Partner Network will formalise arrangements, some of which have been in place since Best Practice Software’s inception in 2004.

“We are launching this new program to formalise the terms, conditions, and foundations of the contractual relationship we have with all third party vendors and commercial partners who integrate with our software” Dr Pyefinch said.

“We’re seeking to not only grow the number of commercial partners to provide new programmatic and integration features for our software users, but also formalise our internal systems, policies, processes and benefits that underpin our commercial partnership program” said Dr Pyefinch.

“Our aim is to put in place simple accreditation steps that help ensure we’re working with vendors who share our philosophies and beliefs, and then celebrate that mutual partnership and collaboration through a new promoted tiered partnership model” he added

Another important reason for the new Bp Partner Network is security. “We’re implementing important new security protocols, including the tokenisation of Stored Procedures and Tables, in the Bp Premier database” said Dr Pyefinch. “The new Notifiable Data Breach Scheme requirements are also a key focus of our new Bp Partner Network” he added.

Current partners will be receiving information, including a survey, as the new program moves through the planning stages, to ensure it meets partners’ needs.

For businesses interested in integrating with Best Practice Software and wanting to know the benefits of being part of the Bp Partner Network, email partners@bpsoftware.net.
