Risk stratification Information Sharing and Data Processing Agreement

What is risk stratification? There are two kinds of risk stratification

1. The first kind is a process for identifying some patients within a Practice who might benefit from extra assessment or support with self-care because of the nature of their health problems.  The process is a mixture of analysis of information by computer followed by review of the results by a clinical team at the Practice.

2. The second kind is a process for identifying patients of ill health and needs across our local population. This will be done by pulling together all the information in an anonymissed file (where your identity has been removed) to look at patterns and trends of illness across Leicestershire and Rutland as a whole.  For further information please use the links below.
