Study backs 'e-nudge'9th April 2010
A UK general practice study has found that using automated electronic reminders to identify patients at risk of cardiovascular disease is feasible in everyday practice.
Dr Tim Holt, clinical lecturer at the University of Warwick and a GP in Kenilworth, led the team of primary care researchers which tested the effects of a system of electronic reminders, the ‘e-nudge’ system. It identifies patients aged over 50 on the basis of estimated cardiovascular risk, highlights those at raised risk and prompts GPs to complete full risk profiles where necessary.
