annual QOF data validation service
The QToolset is designed to prevent coding errors as a patient record is updated. Our Data Validation service is designed to identify retrospective coding errors within your practice population. We have a large collection of complex searches that are aimed at identifying these patients. All of our searches are run remotely and analysed by an experienced GP. We do not need to view individual patient records to run these searches.
Practices renewing their subscription to our QToolset will receive a free Detailed Validation Report in the month after they have renewed their subscription*. This ensures that any coding errors made in the previous year are identified and corrected.
*We are only able to offer this service where a practice has previously purchased a Detailed QOF Data Validation report.
The value of a QOF point varies between practices and depends on the size of the practice and the prevalence of chronic disease in a specific QOF domain.
If you have not coded all of your dementia patients correctly, for example, the value of each QOF point in this domain will be reduced. This can have a significant impact on your income.
