To support the implementation of the NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme, NHS Informatics Merseyside developed a tailored search within EMIS Web to identify those most at risk from Type 2 diabetes.
The search was needed in order to identify pre-diabetic patients over 17 years of age who have a high HbA1c value, taken within the last nine months, which is more than or equal to 42 and less than 48. This excludes current patients residing in nursing homes, diabetic, dementia or palliative care patients and those currently pregnant. For people with diabetes this value is important as the higher the HbA1c, the greater the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.
