I have uploaded a new alert protocol that pops up if a patient consults with a raised QDIabetes score, who hasn’t had some sort of advice or screening logged in the last year (Glucose, HbA1c, or “Lifestyle advice about the risk of Diabetes”)
Download it, unzip and load it up into your templates and protocol folder.
Qdiabetes alert protocol
After receiving enquiries about how to use QDiabetes in practice I have written up this practical walkthrough…
How to utilise QDiabetes in practice
Emis have approved a new code for “Lifestyle advice regarding risk of Diabetes”
Code Request response from Emis
The Code forum has now approved your request for ‘Lifestyle advice regarding risk of diabetes’. The code EMISNQLI53 will be available as part of the May 2013 Code update – LV Encode update 139 and PCS Clinical term update 180 and EMIS Web 79.
The approved Term has also been requested to the NHS Connecting for Health Terminology service for their consideration. If approved it will be assigned a Version 2 Clinical code and released as part of the NHS bi-annual update (these are released every April and October).
I will add this to the Emis Pre-Diabetes Alert Popup Protocol so that it disables the popup for a period of time when entered in the notes. (When it is distributed)
I have uploaded an EmisWEB Popup alert to the resources page. You can download and install it with the instructions on the same page and it will then alert you to any patient with a recorded QDiabetes Risk of > 20% 10 year risk whenever you consult with them.
