Frailty Scoring

Posted on:

You may have noticed that we are untacking some admirative work which allows us to look at frailty, in order to help those who require additional support.

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.
