The Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) has introduced a different sign-up process concerning automated data extraction for the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) and enhanced services. The QOF subset 2014-15 dementia extraction supports the Prime Ministerial challenge to increase national diagnosis rates of dementia. General practices are opted in to this service automatically; but practices can opt-out if they wish.
The new approach replaces separate processes for the Calculating Quality Reporting Service (CQRS) and the General Practice Extraction Service (GPES) documented in earlier GPES training materials. General Practices and Area Teams in England can view details of the new sign-up process via the GPES website:
