Medications is displayed as a count by medication category (of patients that are currently taking a medication in the category) and the prevalence in the population.
The Medication Prevalence is calculated by identifying the number of patients taking a specific medication category and expressing it as a percentage of the total population.
The medication categories are the same as the medication groups provided in the medications filter (except for some Mental Health Medications).
The data is displayed as:
- Count per medication category in a bar chart
- Prevalence per medication category as a percentage of this population in a bar chart
A bar is also provided on the chart for patients that have 'None of these' medications categories. This is provided to assist practices in targeting patients for preventative care and miscoding.
Functions available are as described for Demographics (Bar Chart).
