Electronic MED3 (eMED3) Extract - England

For practices in England, Vision sends eMED3 data, extracted automatically, on a weekly basis via the Messaging Exchange for Social Care and Health (MESH) to NHS Digital and then forwarded to the Department of Works and Pensions (DWP).

Note - This data is completely anonymised and cannot be traced back to your patient.

A weekly extraction of relevant eMED3 data items is scheduled, see Data Extracted for details.

The weekly extraction of relevant eMED3 data items is scheduled for every Sunday between the hours of 12 noon and 11:59pm. The initial extraction includes all your recorded eMED3 data dating back to 1st December 2014, the next and all subsequent extractions contain data from the previous 7 days (Sunday 00.00am - Saturday 11.59pm) eMED3 data. If there has been no eMED3 data during the week, a blank report is still sent.
