Community teams will now have the ability to start SSNAP records in the community, such as those referred for therapy by a GP. (The proforma and helpnotes for this dataset has been attached below)
This is a limited function meant for data entry for patients who do not have a previous acute record and were not treated by an acute team on SSNAP. If the patient was treated by an acute team on SSNAP, the acute team should be starting the record. This function must only be used after the community team have ensured that patient does not exist on the regular webtool. Community teams must check with the previous teams to make sure there is not already a SSNAP record for the patient (that has not been transferred to the community team).
If a record is eventually transferred to a community team, you should contact SSNAP helpdesk (firstname.lastname@example.org) to request that the record be deleted from the non-acute stroke section. The community team will then have to re-enter their data on the record that was transferred from the acute team.
If a community provider adds a new record will all the acute questions be greyed out as we will not have access to this information?
The dataset for post-acute providers will be similar to sections 1, 4 and 7 in the existing dataset. All questions relevant only to acute providers will be greyed out.
How to add a record:
Go to Clinical > Patient records.
Select 'Non-acute stroke' in the Diagnosis drop down box (image below, 1)
Click the 'Add case' button (image below, 2).
You will then need to complete the data required below:
For 'What was the diagnosis?', please select Stroke (non-acute).
Click 'Save' to add the record.
The record has now been added to the 'Non-acute stroke database'. You can enter and save data in the same way you would for a normal record.
Please note: there will not be the option to transfer records created at community level to another team on the system. For this reason, Section 8 needs to be completed and locked by the team that has created the record, please choose no if this team did not perform the 6 month assessment.
How to view non-acute stroke records:
To view the non-acute stroke records added by your team, go to the clinical case management page (Clinical > Patient records). You must then select 'Non-acute stroke' in the diagnosis dropdown box (see below, 1) and the non-acute stroke records added by your team will be listed below.
