Optinet has supported five independentpractices in England this month to become early adopters of electronic General Ophthalmic Services (eGOS) GOS1 and GOS3 form submissions – with full integration to the company’s flagship FLEX practice management system (PMS). The IT division of the National Eyecare Group (NEG), Optinet was the first to offer eGOS integration to Scottish practices in 2018. It is now rolling out its eGOS programme across England, as Primary Care Support England commences acceptance of e-submissions from the end of October.
Explaining the advantages of eGOS, Chris Smith, Optinet Business Development
Manager, said: “Optinet FLEX integration with eGOS not only saves practices time
and money, but its pre-validation function reduces the risk of claims being rejected
due to data error input on manual forms.
“The system also enables practices to enjoy a longer submission window, because
forms no longer have to be collated and posted, and to generally benefit from a
more secure way to submit claims.
“So far, feedback from customers has been hugely positive – and we are now
looking forward to introducing a statement download and reconciliation function
to improve the service yet further,” Chris added.
NEG members can apply for a free 12-month trial of Optinet FLEX and get ready for
eGOS at the same time.
