HIC2015: Best Practice sets up clinical advisory committee
Clinical and practice management software vendor Best Practice has set up a clinical leadership advisory committee involving GPs, practice managers and a nurse to help steer the clinical appropriateness of its software.
In addition to Best Practice CEO Frank Pyefinch and COO Craig Hodges as chairman and deputy chairman respectively, the company has recruited general practitioners Greg Wyatt and Cedric Meyerowitz, practice managers Peter Wallis and Matt Gilchrist and NSW state nurse coordinator Charlotte Hurn.
Mr Hodges said the formation and hosting of the new committee reflected Bp’s guiding philosophy of remaining connected with its users and developed by doctors for doctors.
Dr Wyatt has been an active user and beta tester of Bp software since its establishment and has also been closely involved in the Divisions of General Practice/Medicare Locals for over 20 years. He is the current board chair of the South Eastern Health Providers Association in Victoria.
Dr Meyerowitz has an extensive knowledge of general practice computing and is passionate about electronic communications between healthcare workers and hospitals. He is also capable of doing his own IT support at his practice in Tasmania and has had a long history with beta testing.
Mr Wallis has more than eight years’ experience in practice management and has been involved in the development of technology in general practice, while Mr Gilchrist is very well known in the general practice software community as eminently knowledgeable not just about BP software but in all aspects of general practice IT.
Ms Hurn has experience in monitoring nursing practice and software use support for doctors and nurses.
Best Practice, which Is exhibiting at the Health Informatics Conference (HIC 2015) in Brisbane this week, will hold its first committee meeting at its new business centre in Brisbane next week.
