This quality improvement tool will help practices identify patients who have existing dementia but do not have a recorded diagnosis (by one of the current Read terms used in the QOF specification).
The tool does not search for patients who might be at risk of going on to develop dementia, based on other medical circumstances: it identifies patients who are either currently on dementia-specific medication or have Read codes used in the specific management of dementia including diagnostic terms outside of QOF. It does not currently look for diagnoses associated with neurological diseases of childhood that can be associated with dementia-like syndromes.
A twelve month licence for Dementia Case Finder can be purchased either individually or as a bulk purchase on behalf of a number of practices. Please contact PRIMIS if you wish to discuss obtaining this tool.
The instruction guide for this tool is available to full members only and can be found via the 'Description of audit' link on the main CHART screen.
