"The most valuable repository about the current health of the population may well be GP records and it is ironic that these are virtually unused for local health surveillance and service audit." ( Information for Health, NHS Executive, 1998)
MIQUEST is … A method of extracting data from GP clinical systems Available on all GP systems - same data searches used by all practices In case you’ve been wondering … MorbIdity QUery information Export SynTax
MIQUEST used for (some examples)… National data collection - Seasonal influenza vaccination uptake - National Diabetes Audit - Pneumococcal (PPV) vaccine uptake National toolkits -GRASP-AF : Guidance on Risk Assessment and Stroke Prevention for Atrial Fibrillation Local enhanced services (SHIP) - NHS Health Checks / Phlebotomy / Minor Surgery / HPV / Learning disabilities / Disease Modifying Anti-rheumatic Drugs (MARDS)
MIQUEST searches typically look for … Patient demographics Name / date of birth / age, address / ethnicity / Patient identifiable / pseudonymised / anonymous Clinical codes (Read / CTV-3) Diagnoses / Drugs / Immunisations / Referrals / Advice Date
3 types of MIQUEST query: 1.Subset – patients who meet a certain criteria 2.Analyse – counts patients that meet the criteria of specified group 3.Report – several pieces of info from selected patient records
MIQUEST combined with Excel workbooks … -MIQUEST extracts the data -EXCEL workbook processes it Example toolkits: -Diabetic retinopathy : compare GP and screening service data sets -Minor surgery LES : payment rules (codes and counts) -Child Immunisations : HPA cover and LC50 reports / compare datasets -Health check LES : invitation/exclusion list

Limitations Time intensive Need to develop Quality Assurance process Provides a snap shot of the peoples health not a complete picture – potential to develop MIQUEST query Data will only ever be as good as that recorded on the GP systems!
