If a patient is eligible for cancer screening CAT4 can combine this eligibility with other recall, such as GPMP/TCA or related reviews. This optional step can help you to make your recall more efficient and avoid multiple recalls for the same patient by combining eligibility criteria in the search. The example below shows how to add the MBS item related criteria to the search, you can also look at recipes for MBS items and combine with the steps above. A number of recipes are here: MBS related recipes

This will show a list of all patient meeting the selected categories on all reports.In this example it will combine eligibility for cancer screening and will only show those patients who in are also eligible for a GPMP/TCA and never had the MBS item claimed at your practice.
