10 February 2017
The updated QiO website is now live. QiO has been comprehensively overhauled for 2017 with new features including linear navigation, and a refined overall appearance, while outdated content has been removed.
QiO’s core purpose to host clinical governance compliance toolkits for optical professionals remains unchanged. QiO is funded by LOCSU on behalf of the profession and supported by the College of Optometrists, AOP, ABDO and FODO.
The URL for QiO is unchanged: http://www.qualityinoptometry.co.uk/
There are a variety of new features in QiO:
1. Linear checklist format
2. New account fields
3. Expanded NHS Standard Contracts section
4. Policy Builder feature
5. Built-in ‘Submit to NHS’ feature
Please see the user guide that accompanies the 2017 update which can be found on the QiO homepage. Both new and experienced users, as well as LOC Company Clinical Governance and Performance Leads who can now check subcontractor submissions within QiO itself, should familiarise themselves with this document in light of the changes made to QiO.
