GP2GP Presented to HINZ 2014 Conference
Patients First Solutions Architect Peter Jordan presented his paper investigating what the use of GP2GP shows up about patient movement between general practices to the 2014 Health Informatics New Zealand conference in Auckland.
The GP2GP Project, facilitating the electronic transfer of complete patient records between General Practice systems, was delivered by Patients First in mid-2011 and has been rolled out by the relevant Practice Management System vendors over the past 3 years. This utility is now used in over 90% of practices with monthly record transfer numbers reaching up to 30,000. After a brief description of the various components of GP2GP, this paper will provide a detailed analysis of its use to date, based on nearly 3 years of transactional data supplied by the service provider used to transmit the message files.
