National award winners

Grant Oliver won the prestigious Special Recognition Award at the Public Sector Paperless Awards in his role as IT Project Manager, Richmond GP Alliance (RGPA). They nominated Grant for his “tireless contribution to the transformation of digital practice in Richmond”. They are the first organisation to deliver an end-to-end interoperability solution that benefits the local community.

The RGPA use Vision’s interoperable patient record and appointment sharing solutions. This gives GPs working at their extended appointment hubs read and write access to every local patient’s record, irrespective of whether the patient is registered at a practice that uses a Vision or EMIS system.

“This award is a result of the great team effort and recognises the enthusiasm of the GPs in RGPA. Vision have provided an innovative solution that delivers end-to-end interoperability. It has provided considerable benefits for patients and significantly reduced the volume of paper flowing through the system, making patient care quicker and safer.”
