Accredited GP Practice Software Management Systems

There are four accredited GP software systems. These are:

Three of these systems, Health One, Helix Practice Manager and Socrates, are owned by the Clanwilliam Group.

These four GP practice software systems are accredited using the 2007 Standard, shown below. The establishment of eHealth Ireland in 2015 has driven changes in GP practice software management systems to support a digital health service. These changes include:

  • Support for eReferrals
  • Support for discharge summaries from MN-CMS (Maternity and Newborn Clinical Management System)
  • Support for Individual Health Identifiers (IHI)

A voluntary accreditation process, managed by the National General Practice Information Technology (GPIT) Group, will confirm that these functions are available in GP Practice Software Systems that have previously attained basic certification under the Requirements for Certification 2007 standard. The intention is to carry out this accreditation of eHealth Ireland initiated changes in 2018.
