Ardens has provided practices with a suite of searches to identify currently pregnant patients who have not had Pertussis vaccination.
To locate the searches, access the Population Reporting module > Ardens Searches > 1.5 Ardens Immunisation Searches > Pertussis vaccination in pregnancy.
The 'Currently Pregnant' search looks at patients whose latest code is an appropriate pregnancy code (this will exclude termination and delivery codes).
Of those patients, the 'Not vaccinated, contraindicated or declined' search will exclude patients that have had a pertussis vaccine. This is the practices working list for contacting patients for the vaccine. To view the list of patients, select the 'Patients due a pertussis vaccination in pregnancy' report and click on the View Results option on the EMIS ribbon.
If you require any further assistance on the process above, please contact Ardens support on: firstname.lastname@example.org
