Chronic Kidney Disease forms part of the clinical domains area of QOF.

 

There is only 1 QOF indicator:

 

CKD005 – includes patients aged 18 years or over, with a CKD diagnosis of G3a – G5 (previously stage 3 – 5).

 

Patients are removed from the register if their latest CKD code is a resolved code, or the diagnosis has been superseded by a CKD 1-2 diagnosis.

Ardens EMIS Resources to support CKD for QOF


Clinical Templates

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.

 

Searches

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.

 

QOF Alerts

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.
