Red Whale GP Update Spring/Summer 2022

Red Whale GP Update Spring/Summer 2022

Primary Care IT has partnered with Red Whale to produce EMIS Web searches to support suggested audits in the Red Whale Spring/Summer 2022 GP Update Handbook.

The searches cover the following topics:


Most searches have a report attached which expands the information required to complete audits, saving time trawling through records. The descriptions in the searches and reports offer some guidance on what is being searched for.

The searches have been written with retrospective audit in mind. The relative run date function in EMIS Web allows users to set a date in the past for historic data gathering which will only look at data up to that point. Setting a relative run date of 30/09/2021 will show data as if you had run it on that day; data subsequently added will not be shown; the last 3 months of medication would show prescriptions from July/August/September 2021; the last 12 months would only show data from 01/10/2020 to 30/09/2021.
See our article on running searches to learn how to set a relative run date.
