We also look at:
Information about our ranking criteria, the benchmark measures and where individual providers lie within our rankings is commercially sensitive. We calculate and make changes to these rankings as part of our internal business operations. We’re currently looking at how we can share this information with AXA Health-recognised providers in a way that does not breach data protection regulations or adversely affect our mutual commercial interests.
You may wish to consider ways to improve:
We want to work more closely with providers who share our aims of improving healthcare. We believe this means consistently offering appropriate, clinically evidenced care. You may wish to consider modifying the tickets of service you produce when treating our members.
If we don’t have the right details for you, we can’t accurately compare your practice with the practice of your peers in the same sub-specialty.
We want to know more about the treatment you offer to your patients, to help us better understand your practice.
We know our claims data don’t tell the whole story of your practice, and we’re working to include data from other sources, such as registries, to improve our understanding. Ensuring your data are uploaded to an appropriate registry will help to improve practice in your specialism and in healthcare generally.
We strongly advise you to ensure you to keep your practice details on Healthcode’s Private Practice Register (PPR) - and to check these are up-to-date and accurate.
If you list too many sub-specialisms, for example, we may not have a clear view of your main practice. If we don't know the best way to contact you or when you're available it's harder for our Personal Advisers to make bookings for our members.
We chose to work with PPR as a solution which helps you keep your details up to date across the private medical insurance industry.
We prefer to work with providers we contract with: if you haven’t yet accepted our agreement, you can do so here: Specialist Agreement | AXA Health
Following these pointers will help our Personal Advisers refer patients smoothly to you. Please ensure you:
We also expect providers to follow guidance from their professional bodies and NICE in offering appropriate and evidence-based treatment.
We want to avoid unnecessary or unwarranted treatment, overtreatment, overdiagnosis and unnecessary diagnostics requests.
Where appropriate, we look to providers to upload their procedure details to the relevant national registry.
