Best Practice announces growth in HealthShare Referrals uptake

Best Practice Software has announced that, since integrating the HealthShare referrals functionality earlier this year in Bp Premier’s Indigo SP1 release, there has been consistent growth, with over 50% of Bp Premier subscribers now using the HealthShare Referrals directory on a monthly basis.

 Dr Frank Pyefinch, CEO of Best Practice, said it was pleasing to see many Bp Premier users now using the Referrals Directory.  “We originally decided to offer our subscribers access to HealthShare’s directory because it had been one of our most requested additions to the product. It is very pleasing to see the most recent results, reinforcing the value the directory provides to GPs and Practice admin staff.”

 HealthShare CEO, Rami Weiss, said, “We are thrilled to hear Best Practice Software’s news about the strong uptake from Bp Premier users, reinforcing the anecdotal feedback we consistently receive from GPs and practices. We are proud to partner with Best Practice to offer our directory to support GPs in their referral-making decision process.”

 Available for free to Bp Premier subscribers, the integrated Referrals directory provides GPs with comprehensive and up-to-date information about private practising specialists and allied health professionals, and includes detailed information about a health professional’s specialty, sub-specialties, special interest areas, practice locations, hospital affiliations, languages spoken and bio.

 In addition, the directory allows GPs to search for specialists who participate in “No Gap” and “Known Gap” arrangements, with 29 private health insurers including HCF, nib and the member funds of the Australian Health Service Alliance and the Australian Regional Health Group.

 As part of the integration, GPs are prompted to make the Referrals directory their default address book for writing referrals inside Bp Premier. The seamless integration simplifies the referral process for GPs, freeing up time for the delivery of care.

 Since the Indigo SP1 release, Best Practice has developed further enhancements in its Bp Premier GP software, with JADE SP2 currently in development. For more details on Bp Premier visit here. More details on HealthShare integration in Bp Premier can be found here.

Bp Partner Network welcomes health start-up ‘Cubiko’

Best Practice Software has announced that Brisbane health start-up ‘Cubiko’ has joined its Bp Partner Network as a Gold Partner.

Best Practice CEO Dr Frank Pyefinch said it was perfect timing. “With Cubiko launching its revolutionary new tool at the AAPM Conference it’s timely that they have become a Gold Partner in our Bp Partner Network” said Dr Pyefinch. “By joining the Bp Partner Network they are a recognised and approved integrator with Best Practice”.

Cubiko is the first business insights tool that harnesses fragmented streams of practice information to improve performance. The platform displays data in easy-to-understand dashboards, providing visual representations of practice data alongside selected metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs).

“We’re so pleased to be recognised as a Gold Partner across the Bp Partner Network. Having come from the business of General Practice ourselves, we truly understand the role Bp plays in supporting practices right across the country in delivering optimal patient care. We look forward to continuing to partner with the Bp team as we launch Cubiko, giving practices access to exciting new and powerful data insights,” Cubiko Founder & CEO, Chris Smeed, said.

“The Bp Partner Network is governed by a commercial and technical framework that provides added value for the Partners whilst ensuring they comply with relevant legislation; and that their offering has been assessed for impact or risk to the products and services Best Practice Software provides. The security of our Customers’ data is important to them, their Patients and, in turn, Best Practice and our Partners” said Dr Pyefinch.
After a 12 month trial with leading general practices across Australia, including many Bp Premier users, Cubiko was officially launched this week at the AAPM Conference in Brisbane. Cubiko, a joint venture between data analytics specialist, ‘Aginic’, and award-winning general practice, ‘Inala Primary Care’, will stimulate improvements to productivity, profitability and reduce day-to-day operational challenges facing the general practice community.

“Best Practice was pleased to be part of the 12 month trial and it’s great to see the public launch by our Gold Partner Cubiko” Dr Pyefinch said.
