Classification of Diabetes – Self audit toolkit

Classification of Diabetes (CoD) self audit toolkit

We provide downloads for search sets (queries using the MIQUEST interpreter) that you can run in-practice following our comprehensive extraction guides and basic analysis through the analysis spreadsheets. We are continuously developing search sets (both on Read 2 – 5Byte and CTv3 coding systems) and guides for the following systems and flavours: EMIS (LV and PCS), INPS Vision, iSoft Premier/Synergy, Advanced Crosscare and TPP Systm One.
 The Classification of Diabetes project was commissioned and supported by NHS Diabetes and the Royal College of General Practitioners.
