Risk stratification during COVID-19
CEG, in collaboration with UCL Partners, has developed a set of "Search and risk stratification tools" which scan Electronic Patient Record and stratify patients with long-term conditions into risk groups.
The conditions include asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), type 2 diabetes, atrial fibrillation, hypertension and primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease using statins. Typically, the search divides patients into high, medium and lower-risk groups – with the high-risk groups managed by their GP and/or pharmacists, and the lower-risk groups by healthcare assistants where appropriate.
The searches are available for EMIS and SystmOne via the UCLP website, along with educational and supporting materials.
