The GPSoC Framework will centrally fund all of the Docman GP annual software licence and ongoing support for GP Practices in England. This includes existing Docman customers and also any new Practice who wants to enjoy the advantages of the market leading document management, workflow and practice management solution. One of the core principals of the GPSoC Framework is interoperability, the contract provides a platform for full interoperability and integration at a data level between all systems and suppliers on the framework. Whilst this will make it much simpler for suppliers to work together and share data, it will guarantee that the NHS can be confident that whatever system GPs choose it will work together with any other GPSoC-system.
Under the contract, PCTI are supplying the full Docman GP solution. The clinical EDM functions provide Practices with huge measurable efficiencies and free-up valuable time for healthcare professionals and administrative staff.

Ric Thompson, MD PCTI Solutions “We are delighted that Docman has been recognised as a core GP IT system and now has the licence and support fully funded centrally under the GPSoC contract. I think this is great news for our customers old and new, with ever decreasing budgets busy Practices can rest assured that critical IT systems will be centrally funded.”
“We have been supporting the concept of interoperability for a long time and I am delighted that the GPSoC contract will provide a platform to enable all suppliers to work together and share data. I believe that customers should be able to choose which ‘best of breed’ systems they want to use in their Practice and it’s the supplier’s job to ensure that these systems work together seamlessly. We are very excited by the prospect of working with new suppliers on the Framework and look forward to bringing even more choice of IT systems to GP Practices”
PCTI are currently working with the GPSoC team to achieve compliance, after which there will be a series of communications to inform Practices and CCGs how they can access Docman GP from the Framework.
