Event description

Description

ePACT is an online application which gives authorised NHS users access to 60 months of prescription data. Users can access real time online analyses of prescribing data held on NHS Prescription Services’ database.

ePACT2 has more functionality available to users than the original ePACT system, including the ability to:

  • interrogate prescription data in ways not been possible before
  • easily create data visualisation using interactive reports and dashboards
  • look at high level data summaries down to individual prescription item detail
  • schedule queries to be pre-run so the results are available when the user opens a dashboard
  • export the data from reports and dashboards
  • add an alert to trigger workflows based on specific events
  • access to whole country data
  • view patterns of prescribing at patient level

ePACT2 provides easy-to-use analysis, reports and dashboards. Users no longer need an N3 connection as you can access the system with just an internet connection.

ePACT2 is now live and the roll out to users has begun. This practical workshop, run by NHS Business Services Authority and supported by the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network, will provide users who are registered on the system with an overview of ePACT2.

This session will provide guidance on:

  • Accessing and navigating the system
  • Creating analysis
  • Adding additional views to an analysis
  • Creating and saving filters.

The primary audience is CCG users, but anyone who would benefit from using or seeing ePACT2 is welcome. A participant’s guide is available.

Please note that participants will need to bring a laptop along with them in order to take part in this training session.
