Purpose and Scope

Usage 1 :

Usage Type :    
Usage Description :    
Intended for secondary uses purposes. Management Information to support counts for establishing Quality and Outcomes Framework points used to determine Practice QOF payments. QOF Indicators Supported: Indicator CHD006: The percentage of patients with a history of myocardial infarction (on or after 1 April 2011) currently treated with an ACE-I (or ARB if ACE-I intolerant), aspirin or an alternative anti-platelet therapy, beta-blocker and statin. NICE clinical guidelines & advice: Prevention of cardiovascular disease PH25 These subsets are created using the XML format dm+d data and so within these subsets a small number of concepts are inactive (status 2 or 10) in the International Release. The origin of these inactive concepts is the native XML dm+d and they are now inactive in the new International Release due to natural movement and updating of the International Release content. Work is underway to update the dm+d concepts to the new International release identifiers; at this point this mismatch will be resolved. If using the dm+d in SNOMED CT format the International Release relationships will enable migration to the replacement concept. The subsets as published in the current release data are applicable to the QOF year 2016-2017.
