There are three reports in Primary Sense which can be used for a cervical screening quality improvement (QI) activity. The proportion of female patients with an up-to-date cervical screening is Quality Improvement Measure (QIM) 9, of the Practice Incentives Program (PIP) ten QIMs.
The Primary Sense PIP QI report – 10 measures (% compliance) can provide general practices with their baseline data for cervical screening (QIM 9). This can be used to easily monitor for improvements over time.
To find a list of patients who do not have a cervical screening test result recorded in their file, practice staff can use the following Primary Sense reports:
Patients missing PIP QI or accreditation measures – includes all (active) patients missing measures.
Patients with appointments but missing PIP QI measures – only includes those patients with appointments booked in the next two weeks.
As these reports contain information on all ten QIM measures practice staff will need to narrow the report down using either ‘sort’ onscreen or ‘filtering’ in Excel.
By clicking (or double clicking) on the cervical screening heading in the columns, the report sorts so those patients with cervical screening not recorded (indicated by N) come to the top of the report. If the list is large, some suggestions are listed below for narrowing down the patient sample:
Use RACGP active column and filter by ‘Y’ only.
Sort by ATSI (vulnerable population).
By age (sort from youngest to oldest, filter for set age groups).
