INPS Vision

Vision (In Practice Systems Ltd) is an Electronic patient record system used in Primary Care in England.

It is one of the suppliers approved by the GP Systems of Choice and so funded by the NHS. It permits patients to book appointments on line and order repeat prescriptions.[1] It also permits Patient record access.[2]

In 2010 it had about 20% of the English market, 30% of the market in Scotland and Northern Ireland and just over 50% of the market in Wales.[3]

From April 2014 practices are contractually required to promote and offer patients the opportunity to book appointments online, order repeat prescriptions online and gain access to their medical records online.[4]

The system hosts pathway management systems which automate the processes of monitoring patients, for example those taking Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs which are potentially toxic.[5]

Vision supports Summary Care Records.
