This article talks about a feature of our Accurx Desktop for EMIS/S1 GP practices.

When using Accurx Desktop, information regarding consent will be presented back to you when you pull up a patient in EMIS/S1 and Accurx Desktop. Here's how it looks...

✔️ When a Patient has given consent for communication by SMS text messaging 👇

❓ When a Patient has no recorded objection to SMS text messaging 👇

❌ When a Patient has declined consent for SMS text messaging 👇

❗ Note that you aren't blocked from sending texts to patients that have declined consent. This is intentional so that, for instance, a clinician could send a text whilst in a consultation to their current patient who gives verbal consent ❗

Accurx Desktop checks for the following codes in the patient medical record in EMIS, to see whether a patient has opted in or out of SMS messages:

Consent given for communication by short message service text messaging
SNOMED: 699237001
READ: 9ndP

Consent given to receive test results by short message service text messaging
SNOMED: 911361000000104
READ: 9ndP0

Declined consent for short message service text messaging
SNOMED: 513631000000106
READ: 9ndQ

Declined consent to receive test results by short message service text messaging
SNOMED: 911401000000108
READ: 9ndQ0

In SystmOne, Accurx Desktop checks SMS consent status in the "Patients Details" ✏️

(Note: consent SNOMED/READ codes are not checked by Accurx Desktop in SystmOne)

You can change SMS consent status for a patient in SystmOne by following the steps shown in the image below 💬👇
