EXACT may still display payor codes for a quick way to find certain English/Welsh NHS service codes, however, the NHS no longer require these specific payor coded services to be used. The NHS now require the service codes to contain the relevant “FP17/FP17O Clinical Dataset”.
Any service within EXACT can be used for NHS treatment and those services used with a clinical dataset assigned will get included in the FP17 data that is transmitted to the NHS.
There are two ways to change or assign a data set to a service;
- Open the chart screen on a patient file, select the service list tab, locate the service and edit the service via the e|d button in the lower right.
- Navigate to Configure - Services, locate the service and edit the service via the e|d button in the lower right of the screen.
Once in this window you can choose the relevant data set from the FP17/O Data Set dropdown menu, press on OK, the data set will then be included when you chart and TC a claim including the selected service.
Keeping your NHS service codes within service categories like “Favourites” or “NHS Favourites” is the best way to make sure you use the correct codes that are already mapped to the correct Clinical Datasets.
