Diabetes prevention and detection with EMIS Web

Emis Health have now integrated QDiabetes into EmisWEB much more closely as this snippet from their support centre describes.

From EmisWEB go to the support link and then search for the term QDiabetes

Recent diabetes prevention guidelines issued by NICE recommend the use of a validated computer-based risk-assessment tool, such as QDiabetes, to identify patients who may be at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The QDiabetes tool has been integrated into EMIS Web so you can easily meet the NICE recommendations and put your own prevention strategies into place.

This page on the Emis Support site tells you how to use the QDiabetes tool, also known as QDScore, in EMIS Web and then explains how to use the batch add process to update your patient records with their score. You can then run a search to find your at-risk patients and invite them in for testing.

Final Reckoning for Falkland Surgery

We have just assessed our results from Falkland Surgery. For a total list size of 14500 patients we had 503 patients 2 years ago with Diabetes. Today our Diabetic population has just turned 600. That means 97 patients net increase in Diabetes population in two years or virtually one new diabetic per week. We are currently collating the results from the other practices on the CCG.

We continue integrating pre-diabetes care and identification within the practice.
