QOF Disease Prevalence
The health check identifies patients currently not appearing on practice disease registers, that potential could and should be due to the care being provided to them, and symptoms they're showing indicating a long-term health condition.

Interface have developed a bespoke set of searches that look for these indicators so that patients can be added onto disease registers correctly ensuring patients receive the care they need and practices are rewarded for the care they deliver
The searches look for non QOF recognised read codes, prescribed medications and test results that may be indicative of certain conditions amongst other indicators.
We frequently find patients who are treated for conditions in line with guidelines, but practices won’t receive funding due to an incorrect read code.
Once identified, we use the data to form a summary report. This details current and potential prevalence values across all 19 clinical domains. It also calculates potential uplift in income for your practice. On average, we identify £1,800 of additional income per 1,000 list size in addition to improving disease prevalence.
