The Devonshire Practice, a Microtest customer in Southsea, is benefitting from Microtest’s new CHA2DS2-VASc Stroke Score and Risk Calculator tool, FastVacc and its Performance Plus module.

Sue Crook, Practice Manager at the Devonshire Practice, explains: “Using Performance Plus and the Stroke Score and Risk Calculator, I have achieved one of my highest ever QOF scores to date of 99.5%, which is absolutely amazing! We have also come top in the city of Portsmouth for Flu vaccinations in every single category, thanks to FastVacc! The icing on the cake is that we were also awarded second place in the city for patient satisfaction in the Government patient survey (out of 26 practices)! We are utterly delighted!”

The tools, which are free of charge to all Microtest users, are now available within Microtest’s Evolution GP clinical system. The CHA2DS2-VASc Stroke Score and Risk Calculator tool enables users to update a patient’s live medical record and clear Atrial Fibrillation (AF) QOF deficits in a single mouse click. The CHA2DS2-VASc Stroke Score is a clinical prediction rule for estimating the risk of stroke in a patient’s Atrial Fibrillation (AF). Performance Plus provides easily readable and intuitive tables and charts to report on a diverse set of data which enables practices to easily get the most out of resources, clinics, clinicians’ skill sets and appointment booking matrices, while reducing back office functions. This enables clinicians to deal with all patient issues at one time, in a professional manner and without having to call the patient back for further needless appointments.

Sue concludes: “We are really thrilled with these innovative solutions from Microtest, which are helping us achieve great things –enabling us to provide even better patient care whilst also making my working life easier!”
