New feature – a new way to load ‘flu at risk’ patients into PatientChase

14th Aug 2020

With the impact of Coronavirus, there is increased importance upon vaccinating patients against flu. This includes the introduction of a new group of patients – those aged 50-64.

PatientChase now has the functionality for your practice to manage ALL of the groups at risk. And it’s easy to do.

Previously it was a case of importing a specific at risk group one at a time, treating them in isolation.

In our latest version, every group is listed in our Search Builder as individual searches, allowing you to choose any combination, be it everyone at risk in the practice or a combination of specific age groups.

In the example above, the ‘all patients at risk who have not had the flu jab’ target is picked which is a very useful search if you want to target everyone at risk. Notice the sub groups below that. You can select any or all. So for example, should you wish to target all over 50s only, simply click both the ‘Flu Jab 50-64’ and ‘Flu Jab over 65’ targets. They will then combine and display in your results.

Once selected, you can then easily contact them through PatientChase via SMS, email or letter.

The most useful and user friendly software that I have encountered in over 30 years of working with management systems.

I am so glad that we as a practice have purchased PatientChase – it has completely revamped our recall system, has been invaluable during flu recall season and more importantly shows us where the ‘holes’ are when we get to near the end of the QoF year. Many thanks!

PatientChase is an excellent product of which I think as soon as you purchase it you will ask yourself ‘how ever did I cope without it?!

New Feature - Using PatientChase to identify patients who have not yet had 1st or 2nd Covid vaccinations in line with the government’s priority groups

We have now deployed a suite of Covid searches which can be accessed in the PatientChase Search Builder. The data of eligible patients who have not yet had a 1st or 2nd vaccine is taken directly from EMIS and our searches are in line with the government’s priority groups of the most vulnerable. Now they are in PatientChase, it is very easy for you to cross reference lists, identify those who still need a 1st or 2nd vaccination and see who has or hasn’t an appointment booked for either vaccination.
