EMIS are in the process of rolling out V45 of the QOF business rules to practices. Once updated you may notice lower numbers for your completed COPD reviews. In order to meet the new requirements for 2020/21 the following is required for a QOF COPD annual review:

  • COPD review coded.
  • A recording of the number of COPD exacerbations.
  • Medical Research Council (MRC) breathlessness scale score coded.
