There is increasing demand for practices to focus more on DOAC monitoring. The criteria for identifying these patients is however very complex. One such schematic for this, developed by a London AntiCoag Task Group can be found here
We are pleased therefore to announce that the functionality for you to identify patients who need DOAC monitoring is now available in PatientChase, in the form of some incredibly easy to run searches.
They now appear in the latest version of PatientChase (located in our Search Builder) and can be run as stand alone for internal review by your pharmacist or GP or in combination with your chronic disease annual reviews.
There are 3 searches:
- DOAC patients needing review
- DOAC patients whose dosage is incorrect
- DOAC patients who are on other meds that interact
The definitions for these can be found here.
Clinical reasons (example below) for placing patients in each category are highlighted and these can then be acted upon by the relevant clinician.
(Spreadsheet truncated for display purposes. Actual dataset includes patient details including names and EMIS numbers for easy identification.)
