Evenlogic provides help and support to designated bodies in the NHS and the independent health sector in setting up software and processes to support the introduction of the Revalidation of licensed doctors. Revalidation is scheduled to commence in December 2012. Our support activities combine the company’s skills in software development and electronic forms development with experience gained since early 2009 working with the NHS Revalidation Support Team (RST).
A key Revalidation related activity has been the development and support of the Revalidation Organisational Readiness Self Assessment (ORSA) tool and interim tools. These are based on Evenlogic’s PDF electronic forms technology and since their inception in 2011, have been used regularly by all NHS designated bodies to assess their state of readiness for Revalidation and to electronically transfer the readiness data to the RST for collation and publishing (see ORSA Report 2011-2012).
REVALIDATION SUPPORT AVAILABLE TO DESIGNATED BODIES
Different designated bodies have different issues and constraints when introducing Revalidation. Our objective is to try and keep appaisers’ and doctors’ workloads as simple as possible and to apply and adapt proven generic tools and resources as much as possible. Typical activities include:
- Medical Appraisal Guide (MAG) model appraisal form: Adapting, tailoring and adding appropriate security to this form as necessary. The MAG form is an intelligent interactive PDF form developed by the NHS Revalidation Support Team (RST) that enables a doctor to enter information required for revalidation and attach supporting documents. The form is based on Adobe’s LiveCycle technology – a technology in which Evenlogic has extensive experience (see www.evenlogic.co.uk/forms/).
- Responsible Officers (RO) dashboard developed by the RST: Applying this to meet designated bodies’ specific requirements and in a way that assists the preparation of ORSA returns.
- Supporting information: Tailoring, adapting and converting into electronic forms or electronic format documents used to collect supporting information (such as significant events and colleague and patient feedback questionnaires), so that these can be attached to the MAG form.
- Document management, workflow and hosting: Advising on and managing the submission, hosting, processing and retrieval of final locked-down appraisal forms and supporting documents.
