  • Up to date
  • Overdue
  • At Risk, Indigenous, Nothing Recorded
  • At Risk, Non Indigenous, Nothing Recorded
  • At Risk, Unknown[1] , Nothing Recorded
  • Non-target group[2]

Indigenous:

  • if first dose <50 years (at-risk condition), 1 revaccination after 5 years and another at the later of 50 years of age / 5 years
  • All Indigenous NT residents, first dose at 15 years, revaccination after 5 years and again at the later of 50 years of age / 5 years.

Non-Indigenous:

  • if first dose ≥65 years, no revaccination. If a risk condition develops, 1 revaccination 5 years after first dose
  • if first dose <65 years (at risk condition), 1 revaccination 5 years later, then another at the later of 65 years of age / 5years

 

Pertussis graph

This graph needs to be filtered for the population of risk - please refer to the relevant immunisation guidelines to determine the filters to  be used. By default all patients are shown in the report.

 

 


Graphs > Shingles

The Immunisations > Adult > Shingles graph provides a pie chart by immunisation status.

The population aged between 70 and 79 years will be displayed by default.

The categories provided are:

  • Recorded
  • Not Recorded




Risk Factors Filter

The risk factors filter tab enables practices to search for patients with risk factors that relate to specific immunisations. It allows the practice to search for the categories that are provided in the Immunisation Coverage Reports. For full details on conditions used in the filter please see here: Details of Risk Factor Filter Pneumococcal

The Risk Filter provides:

  • Substance Abuse factors
  • Conditions increasing the risk of pneumococcal[1] - please see appendix
  • Pregnancy
  • Obesity (BMI >=30)

Note that the diagnoses categories on the reports are already provided under the Conditions Filters:

  • Diabetes
  • COPD
  • Asthma
  • CVD


[1] The conditions associated with an increased risk of invasive pneumococcal are provided in The Australian Immunisation Handbook 10th Edition 2013. Note that not all conditions listed are able to be extracted from the GP Clinical Systems.

 



[1] Unknown refers to the Indigenous status of a patient has not been recorded in the medical record. Given the different requirements for immunisation (see above), it is important to identify the indigenous status of patients.

 

[2] The non-target group are patients with no immunisation recorded and who do not require immunisation at this time. The filters should be used to look at target groups.
