IIF Outstanding Alert (HP161)

IIF Outstanding (HP161)


IIF Outstanding is a protocol alert. It displays outstanding action needed for IIF for the year 2023/24. If a user double clicks on the alert it will take them to a template where the required actions can be completed. 

The set of payment indicators for IIF has been drastically slimmed down for 2023/24. To avoid duplication of alerts we have not included either of the flu indicators (VI-02 and VI-03) in this protocol, meaning it will display for patients eligible for Learning Disability health checks and patients who have not had a QFIT result prior to a fast track cancer referral.
Some indicators seen in IIF for 2022/23 have been retained as part of the PCN DES. These have been transferred to separate alerts HP231 Target for SMR and HP232 Consider PCSP.

Resource type:



This protocol alert is part of the PCIT Toolset

What does it do?

The IIF outstanding alert appears in the red box in EMIS Web, if you hover over the alert it will tell you the actions that are outstanding for the patient being reviewed (there may be more than one action).
The 5th IIF indicator, ACC-08 (Percentage of appointments where time from booking to appointment was two weeks or less), cannot be measured using a red box alert.

What does it look like?

Here is an example screenshot of the protocol:

You can double click this protocol alert it and it will take you to a template to action the outstanding actions.

The template that opens will give you even more specific information about the patients needs for each indicator (see screenshot below). Unlike all indicators last year, the requirements for CAN-02 present a challenge for reminding users of work to be done since generating a lower GI/colorectal fast track referral is too late if a QFIT has not already been done. Instead the alert and associated template will remind the user of the lack of a QFIT and offer some possible solutions.

Change management considerations

If your practice has internally approved this protocol alert, you will need to let the relevant team members know it will appear in the alert box within EMIS Web. It may change the way in which you complete the IIF requirements. It's worth any practice team members who will be using this Handy protocol to review the updated IIF indicators as well as this support article so they fully understand it.
