Purpose and Scope

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 HF004: In those patients with a current diagnosis of heart failure due to left ventricular systolic dysfunction who are currently treated with an ACE-I or ARB, the percentage of patients who are additionally currently treated with a beta-blocker licensed for heart failure. Historically this cluster has been included for a retired indicator, but was also used to ensure that non-licensed beta-adrenoceptor blockers were identified and excluded If this section becomes updated I would expect the indicator rules would be updated to just look for the licensed beta-adrenoceptor drugs. NICE clinical guidelines & advice: See guidance for treatment of heart failure and chronic heart disease 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.
