  • ability to view variations in practice/uptake across local providers to inform decision-making

  • integrated, seamless participation management
  • increased reporting functionality
  • easier integration with other commissioning organisations, if required, in future

CQRS Local has been built with general practices in mind and offers several benefits with its uptake.

These include:

  • flexibility in managing local incentives schemes through a payment tool that leads to prompt payments
  • a single point of access for local and national claims
  • payment going directly to the practice bank account, in the same way as national payments
  • a reduction in the administrative overhead of submitting Excel-based claims
  • a reduced risk of inaccurate claims and without the need for practices to submit invoices following the approval of a claim
  • easier reconciliation of payment
  • the ability to track all stages of the process following submission
  • enhanced reporting capability for reconciliation of payment, making it easier for providers to understand what payments have been made against the activities claimed.

“The reports generated will allow to present more effectively the evidence for payment and as the system calculates the values to be reimbursed, this will also support payments processing.”
