In the October NES update we reported the Ministry of Health and PHOs have been working together to reduce the variation rate of enrolments between the current capitation based funding (CBF) export process and the National Enrolment Service (NES).
Data provided to Pinnacle after the last PHO report showed the variations between enrolments in NES and enrolments in practice registers. We will be in touch with you over the next few months if your practice has a large variation to help you work on a plan to remedy this.
The suggested approach below will allow significant gains prior to the rapidly approaching 14 November export and will allow a subsequent assessment of where we are placed in terms of the target accuracy thresholds.
The Ministry of Health is advising the following priority steps before the next CBF submission in mid-November:
1. Prioritise checking the records for patients who appear in your PMS as enrolled, but who do not appear to be enrolled in NES. There is a query builder available for Medtech practices to identify these patients.
2. If time allows, continue looking into other areas of difference in the reports, starting with patients who appear as enrolled in NES but do not appear in the PMS as enrolled, then ethnicity, then quintile differences.
