Ardens includes a comprehensive suite of Case Finding searches to support practices to improve data quality and ensure QOF payments are correctly calculated.


Please download the user guide using the link below and share this with the members of your practice team who will be working on these searches.


We have also created a table that shows QOF domain income per patient (second link below) and we recommend you view this as it will help you understand the value of individual patients diagnosed with a QOF-related condition.


Technical Information (for those that are interested)

We have extracted diagnosis codes from the QOF Business rules in order to help practices use the correct code to add patients onto a QOF register. Please see this spreadsheet (opens in new window) for details of diagnosis codes by register.


For those that are interested, the full QOF business rules can be found here and there is also the full primary care refset available to browse here.


Many people are not aware of the importance of prevalence and the relevance of it in terms of your practice's QOF income. There is more information about this in this support article.
