Message from EMIS Group Training
From the online resource EMIS Now, my colleague Pauline and I have pulled together what we feel would be the most useful resources for GP Returners at this time.
For most these videos should capture the essentials to get you started
Once you are working within the practice (in surgery or remotely) if any of you are struggling with any of the EMISweb functions Pauline or Wendy would be happy to do a short one to one session with them via bomgar (remote access provided by BSO available in all GP surgeries in NI.) Your Practice Manager could arrange this by emailing them
Wendy McGookin – firstname.lastname@example.org
Pauline Davey – Pauline.Davey@emishealth.com
EMISweb Online Resources
EMIS Now is an online resource for users of EMIS products. In Northern Ireland, many GP practices use EMIS Web. LV & PCS are no longer being used and have been replaced with EMIS Web.
We have put together a list of hyperlinks below which will take you straight to pertinent information that we feel will be useful for you at this time. The majority of hyperlinks below are reading material with step by step instructions and screenshots for common tasks that GPs will need to use, such as finding patients, adding consultations etc, but you will also notice at the top of the list there are 3 videos. These are relatively short sessions that will be a very good starting point as either a refresher for those who have used EMIS web in the past or a good starting point for new users. We would recommend watching the videos first and then supplementing with the step by step instructions if necessary afterwards.
