Identify Patients with Hepatitis C


As there is now a cure available for hepatitis C it is useful for practices to identify those patients diagnosed with hepatitis C to recall and treat them.


Patients with hepatitis C who have not been treated yet

CAT Starting Point

  1. CAT Open – CAT4 view (all reports) loaded
  2. Population extract loaded and extract pane "hidden"
  3. Optional Only (star): Filter Pane Open and under the 'General' tab, "Active Patients (3x < 2 years)" selected
    *The decision to select either "Active" or "All" patient is left to the practice to make

  • In Filters Pane
    1. Select 'Conditions' tab
    2. Click 'Other' tab then check 'Hepatitis C' under Hepatitis and Liver

  • Click 'Recalculate'

To see the list of patients with hepatitis C click on the 'View Population' icon.

This will load a worksheet with the list of patients and their information particularly the last column that shows the assigned provider and date of last visit.

This list can be used as a source for recall using Recall CAT or, if you are using Topbar, you can create Topbar prompts for these patients to alert the providers when anyone on this list is visiting.
