A risk stratification tool that integrates with EMIS Web

NHS England's enhanced service rewards practices for the proactive case management of patients classed as vulnerable or at risk of an unplanned admission. It also rewards those who identify their top two per cent of at-risk patients via a risk stratification tool.

Our Risk Stratification solution is a fully integrated tool which uses the peer-reviewed and clinically validated QAdmissions algorithm. Searching for 29 different risk factors within the patient’s record, it produces an individual risk score for your patient. This will then support you to case-find patients and create a personalised care plan, preventing unplanned hospital admissions.


“Within three months of implementing the tool, it is estimated we have had a 5-10% pick up rate in detecting patients at risk of admission – up to 20 patients. We have written over 200 care plans for vulnerable patients as a result of the tool.”
