  • What we know about data requirements for the proposed new funding model for Member Services
  • What are the issues that will face Member Services in the next two years as the Clinical Systems introduce major new products?  Is it time to re-assess which system you are using and plan to change?  Will changing to a new system be more or less of a trauma and expense than going through to a completely new version of an existing system?  How long will it take new systems to stabilise? What are the risks to patients, staff and the organisation?
