As a GP, you need to manage your patients, your work in the practice and your own development and appraisal. You rely on accurate information from a multitude of different sources. You need to integrate information from your own practice and from elsewhere. Then you need to use it in your own appraisal, as reference for clinical work or to support management of your practice to retain your licence to practise.
GPs have an increasing administrative burden which is time-consuming, inefficient and impinges upon providing the best possible care to their patients. For example; recording complaints for CQC can be administratively onerous which can involve searching for details in shared folders or websites, copying and recording in the correct format and location and can often mean duplicate versions of the same data.
