Information on the National Enrolment Service, how it is being implemented, and what this means for PHOs and general practice.
What is the National Enrolment Service?
The National Enrolment Service (NES) has been developed to provide up to date national enrolment and identity data.
The NES provides:
- a real time enrolment process used by all general practices
- an up to date data set to ensure accuracy of Capitation Based Funding (CBF) calculations
- validated NHI and up-to-date patient demographics, supporting accurate identification of enrolled population and clinical safety
- validated addresses using eSAM service, supporting accurate assignment of funding
- health identity and enrolment web services integration with PMS, creating a seamless experience for the user when interacting with health services.
The Referenced Documents to the PHO Services Agreement V6.2 have been updated to support the use of NES as the single source of enrolment data informing CBF calculations. These documents have been endorsed by PSAAP. Enrolment requirements and forms are found at Enrolment requirements on the TAS website.
