The NHS DAF Alerting Report is also available through MyPractice Cloud (MPC).
The NHS Alert Manager provides a means for practices to setup alerts on NHS policy or service breaches, and to track the data around practice conformance.
The trigger conditions for NHS DAF Alerting are based on NHS requirement specifications approved by the NHS. In response to a DAF trigger condition a configurable message (unique to to each KPI) displays as a warning. The user who triggered the alert is able to add supporting notes/evidence as to why the action is occurring. The DAF breach action is logged in the database along with the user's supporting notes.
NHS Practices can optionally configure EXACT to
