The PPR for Private Medical Insurers
The Private Practice Register (The PPR), provides a definitive primary source of specialist information that streamlines the due diligence process for specialist recognition.
The PPR enables PMIs to easily access essential documentation and key information to help them assess new specialist recognition applications as well as receive ‘live’ updates to specialist profiles they have a relationship with.
Healthcode holds a Republication License with the General Medical Council (GMC) for The PPR. This enables insurers to receive real-time alerts for any changes the GMC hold against the specialist and immediate visibility of what those updates are via The PPR.
Benefits The PPR delivers to PMIs
Increased administration efficiencies
The PPR delivers increased administration efficiencies by replacing some of the manual process with the checking of information on new applications submitted through the system. Some of the verification checks, such as GMC registration and bank details, are automated, thus reducing waiting time for key verification checks. The PPR enables PMIs to easily access essential documentation and key information to help them assess consultant and practitioner new applications.
The PPR has the potential to deliver cost savings for PMIs by replacing some of the manual processes for updating existing consultant or practitioner records.
It can be challenging for insurers to maintain and keep up to date consultant and practitioner information. As the definitive primary source for consultant and practitioner information, insurers receive 'live' updates to specialist profiles they have a relationship with.
A key benefit of The PPR is that it enables all key healthcare stakeholders to have access to a common network. Essentially this means organisations that have a relationship with a consultant or practitioner will have visibility of their profile. This not only improves transparency across the sector but enables organisations such as PMIs to meet their due diligence obligations and ensures patient (member) safety.
