The Victorian Department of Health, the Victorian Renal Clinical Network, Kidney Health Australia and Western Health together with General Practice Victoria (GPV) have funded enhancements to support 1) the management of kidney disease patients and 2) early identification of 'at risk' kidney disease patients. The 'CKD' tab provides 2 graphs:
This graph is designed to enable practices to manage their patients who have been diagnosed with CKD. It displays the status of the clinical items that need to be reviewed for these patients, allowing clinicians to follow up on items that are outstanding or not at target. The HBA1c status only applies to patients with a diagnosis of diabetes, regardless of diabetes type.
CKD AT Risk
This graph is designed to enable practices to identify their patients who are at risk of CKD. It excludes patients who are already diagnosed with CKD. It displays the status of the CKD risk factors for patients who have one or more risk factors, allowing clinicians to recall patients with high risk levels or multiple risk factors.
