Ardens has created a suite of searches to assist practices with identifying diabetic patients who may meet the eligibility criteria for prescribing a continuous glucose monitor on the NHS.
To Locate the searches, navigate to the Population Reporting module > Ardens Searches > 5.1 Ardens Conditions Reports > Conditions – Diabetes > Continuous Glucose Monitoring folder.
The first 3 searches in this folder identify patients coded with Type 2 Diabetes, issued insulin and either on the dementia or learning disability register or coded with recurrent/severe hypos, or impaired hypo awareness. You may wish to review these patients, as they may meet the criteria to be prescribed a continuous glucose monitor on the NHS.
The last search in this folder identifies patients aged 18yr or over, coded with Type 1 Diabetes eligible to be prescribed a continuous glucose monitor.
