Strata Health single signon

Bp Premier has integrated with Strata Health Solutions' PRISM system for end-to-end management of GP referrals and real-time matching of clinical resources to patient needs.

Bp Premier users with a Strata account can access PRISM through a browser from within Bp Premier, removing the need to open an external application and supply a new login username and password. The browser provides access to all enhanced referral services available through the PRISM system.

You can open the PRISM browser from Bp Premier's main menu, or open the browser from within a patient record to go straight to that patient's profile.

For more information on Strata Health Solutions and PRISM, consult their website.
