Ardens EMIS Resources to support CKD for QOF
The following templates are available to support staff recording QOF activity for CKD patients.
- Chronic Disease Templates - the Ardens CKD template contains a QOF only page for capturing all the QOF requirements for the current financial year.
- Multi-Morbidity Templates – for patients with multiple long-term conditions and to capture all QOF requirements for all conditions relevant to the specific patient.
The following searches are available to support staff with achieving your QOF CKD indicator.
- Case Finders Searches - contains a suite of searches to identify potential CKD patients missing from your practice QOF register.
- QOF Monitor Dashboard – works with Ardens Manager QOF dashboard to allow a visual of QOF performance in monetary and points values.
Real-time alerts are available by default to alert practice staff of data quality issues which are affecting the CKD QOF achievement. In the pink QOF alert box, a ‘possible CKD’ alert will display for you to consider a CKD diagnosis if a patients latest eGFR is less than 60.
