Best Practice Software today launches the latest release of its popular GP software Bp Premier – Lava SP3.
Bp Premier Lava Service Pack 3 includes some significant additional changes to support the National Cervical Screening Program which came into effect this month.
Bp Premier Lava Service Pack 3 also includes some extra enhancements, including support for the Healthcare Homes trial, allowing participating sites to record and report on patient tiers; and support for the uploading of Pathology and Radiology results to the My Health Record.
The National Cervical Screening Program replaces the former state-based screening registers. As part of the new program, the Pap smear has been replaced by a combination of cervical HPV testing and Liquid Based Cytology. Screening has changed from two yearly starting at age 18 to five yearly starting at age 25.
To accommodate this national initiative and other national changes, Bp Premier Lava Service Pack 3 includes key enhancements, including a Pathology Request Screen: Removal of the “Pap smear” and “Cervical cytology” test names from the test list, the addition of new test names and additional cervical screening details. The Patient Record has also been updated, with the Cervical screening page in the patient record now split into two sections displaying the old Pap smear results in the top half of the page and the new CST results in the lower half. Recording a Screening Result has also been enhanced. The data entry window for entering screening results has also been modified to allow entry of both older pap smear results as well as the new data elements that are included in the new reports.
Best Practice Software has developed a Quick Reference Guide and FAQ document to support customers through these important changes. This information is also available on the Bp Premier Knowledge Base.
Sites using a pre-Lava version of Bp Premier are encouraged to check out the Bp Premier Knowledge Base to access videos and other reference material to assist with the upgrade process.
