Case Finding Through RAIDR

RAIDR has developed a unique case finder tool within the Long Term Conditions screens in the Primary Care dashboard.  RAIDR enables patients who potentially have conditions such as dementia to be identified. As an example, the case finding tool identifies patients with a dementia diagnosis in secondary care but no such diagnosis in primary care and can also highlight those patients who have anti-dementia drugs prescribed but no correlating diagnosis recorded on their GP records. The case finder will play a part in meeting the needs of the growing number of patients suffering with dementia as well as ensuring such patients are included for QOF prevalence payments. The tool also supports Practices with the National Dementia Diagnosis Improvement programme work.
