New Codes On Medical Record Posted or Updated on 5 Jun 2024

Aged 50 or over?  Noticed a new entry on your medical record?  Wondered what an EFI score is?  This is a contractual requirement across Lancashire and is part of a wider piece of work being carried out by the ICB who said:

“The addition of the Electronic Frailty Index score is to help identify individuals whom may benefit from further assessment and enable the practice to identify those whom may benefit the most. It is an administration code added to the healthcare record based only on existing information contained in the record. It is not an indicator of a clinical diagnosis of Frailty nor can be used as such. The use of the index score is part of improving quality of care to individuals with frailty across Lancashire and South Cumbria.”  Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care Board

If you are unhappy with this policy, then you can contact the Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care Board, Patient Experience Team on:  lscicb-fw.patientexperience@nhs.net or call 0300 373 3550.
