Integrated Audit & Reporting for Enhanced Services
EScro is the sole integrated solution for the current requirements for Enhanced Services reporting within NHS Scotland.
EScro modules include Alcohol Brief Intervention, Depression, Diabetes, Drug Misuse and Near Patient Testing.

Escro manages services provided by GP's that are not covered by the core nGMS contract; collectively these are termed as Enhanced Services and may be Direct, Local or National . Our software provides full disease management plans and monitors patient treatment to ensure that the minimum clinical standards required by the contracts are being met. At the end of each quarter we perform a full clinical audit of patient records and electronically submit the verified claims to the relevant NHS finance department for payment.

Data Collection Module :
A logical, clean interface allowing instant access to summarized information, and allowing quick, yet methodical steps throughout the patient encounter. Screens can be customized to best reflect your local requirements, and ensure that important patient issues are highlighted from the very start of the encounter.

Payment Verification Module:
This collects and verifies valid claims prior to electronic submission to the CHP's for payment. The module may be run at any time during the quarter to ensure that the minimum criteria for each claim are being met, giving practice managers and GP's an instant update.

Audit Module :
The Audit module provides an overall picture of Enhanced Services provided by the practice and includes additional information in order to identify trends and patterns not provided by the submission module.

"EScro gives considerable detail of activity across every Practice and is rapidly becoming an essential planning device."
Garry Coutts
NHS Highland

" The system is pretty much unique in the detail of individual treatments it gives for the practices.”
"If we don't have the data on enhanced services, we are just giving people money without knowing what it is for. "

Carole Sinclair

Practice Manager,
Wick Medical Practice

"Our practice has been using EScro since it's inception in 2005.  The Payment Verification module ensures that the practice has achieved the minimum criteria for each claim.  Missing indicators can be brought to the GP's or Nurse's notice and rectified before the monthly report is submitted. "

" Escro has allowed us to adopt a low bureaucracy model of service monitoring, and through development has resulted in a more holistic quality assured approach to monitoring service provision which gives enhanced accountability reassurance."
