Using the MSKPN Integration

Sam Written by Sam
... on a delightful December day.

Nookal’s MSKPN integration allows UK-based practitioners to collect MSKPN and BUPA-required Outcome Measures directly from Nookal and export the data into the required format so it can be easily uploaded to MSKPN and/or emailed to BUPA.

MSKPN provides guidance to help raise standards and educate commissioners and system leaders of the benefits of investing in quality MSK services to patients, purchasers and staff working in those organisations. If you are interested in becoming a member of MSKPN, you can visit their website at www.mskpn.co.uk

The following article outlines the steps required to setup and start using the MSKPN integration.
