  •  NET Framework 4 (installs automatically if not present, however will require a reboot of the PC)

 

NOTE: If .NET 4.6.2 is not already installed on your Server a reboot is required, therefore the update cannot be performed while Bp Premier is in use.

  • Before you run a program upgrade on the Bp Premier server, ensure that any workstations in remote download mode have been synchronised with the server database. If you do not synchronise laptops in remote mode before you upgrade, you will have to re-enter all information recorded while in remote mode. For instructions on how to synchronise, review the section Synchronise new data with the server. In this case, all users will need to log out of Bp Premier until the upgrade is complete on the server.

What’s New In Saffron

 

IMPORTANT: This update will need to update the database tables used by the program. Best Practice Software recommends updating the server outside of business hours. After applying to the server, the upgrade can then be applied to each workstation, this workstation update should only take a few minutes. Due to new features released in the Indigo update it is a requirement that any sites using Management update all clients immediately as Management functions will be disabled in previous versions that connect to a Saffron server install.

After upgrading, the Setup Third-Party Integrations screen will prompt you to enable the specific partner role for any third-party database integrations that your practice uses.  You must enable integrations from this screen; all legacy integrations will be disabled after upgrading to Saffron.

ePrescribing Utility

This utility switches on the fast-tracked ePrescribing functionality in Bp Premier Jade Sp3 and Jade SP4 only.

Critical Information:

Practices and practitioners must inform patients which pharmacies in their area are eScript ready. If the patient’s pharmacy of choice is not eScript ready, they would then require a paper prescription instead. We have developed numerous resources to help you with this education process.  To get started visit the Knowledge Base for more information, along with this article collating ePrescribing resources

UPDATE: Please note as of January 2020, all Practices can begin using ePrescribing. ePrescribing has been turned on by default with our latest release, Saffron.
