SUPPORTING PRACTICES TO IMPROVE DISEASE PREVALENCE AND INCOME
QOF is an incentive programme to reward GP practices for the care they provide to their patients. Interface Pharmacists can support practices and primary care networks (PCNs) with their QOF 2020 / 2021 achievement. This will increase disease prevalence, clinical care and the associated income for practices.
QOF looks at key indicators across 19 domains, including Heart Failure, Asthma and Diabetes, which helps practices to provide care for patients living with long term conditions.
How can Interface help?
Interface Clinical Pharmacists can identify patients missing from clinical registers. These patients are often being treated, but are missing from the QOF disease registers due to coding errors. This means that practices are not receiving the correct level of funding. Without proper register maintenance, patient care may be impacted with patients missing annual reviews for example.
Our Clinical Pharmacists have generated £8,577,179.34 worth of additional QOF income for practices and PCNs with 214,846 patients added to the QOF register.
Our Clinical Pharmacists have developed a bespoke set of searches to support practices and PCNs with their QOF achievement. On average, we identify £1,800 of additional income per 1,000 list size. This is in addition to improving QOF prevalence and disease register validation.

In addition, you can receive further support with your Heart Failure register. Our pharmacists use their clinical expertise to interrogate the register and refine the diagnosis of all patients within the domain. This includes those with LVSD.
