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 Indicator Supported: To support the creation of the register for the QOF Contraception Business Rule Set. In order for a patient to be included within the register for this business rule set they must have received or been prescribed one of the following: An emergency hormonal contraception Combined oral contraceptive Progestogen only contraceptive Contraceptive patch Contraceptive diaphragm IUD IUS NICE Guideline (where appropriate). 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 2018-2019.
