OPPIC is now live!
Access OPPIC via this link.
You’ll also be able to access the site from the left-hand menu of Teams.
Note that if you access OPPIC (or any other Office 365 application) from your own mobile/tablet/home computer, you’ll first need to authenticate it.
So what's changed?
ePPIC has now been replaced with a better and more powerful system called OPPIC (Organisational Policies, Procedures, and Information for Consumers).
Everything you used to look for in ePPIC has been moved to the new platform, which is built on SharePoint and part of Office 365. This means you can access it from any device at work (including generic log in accounts), as well as at home or on the road.
OPPIC provides better search capability and only current documents can be found, which means you’ll always have access to current and reliable information.
Existing links to ePPIC documents
All existing ePPIC links will automatically redirect to the corresponding document in OPPIC, so you don’t need to worry about broken links.
The search functionality and filters are more powerful in OPPIC. You’ll be able to search for all or part of a file name (eg “thunderstorm” or “thunderstorm asthma action plan”). You’ll also be able to filter by document type (policy, IV guidelines, procedure, etc), site/location, department, etc.
View this short video on how to search and filter OPPIC.
Now that OPPIC is live, we’ll need to work on updating our document information (metadata) so the filtering works as designed. We’ll also need to transpose ePPIC documents to new SharePoint templates, so version information can be added when documents are printed.
