Testimonials

I feel more confident in the management of my asthma patients. The audit helped provide a more streamlined approach.

Dr. W, NSW

I took two things from this audit, the first was appreciating the risk of osteoporosis that increased use of oral corticosteroid courses has on patients. The second was how eosinophil levels influence the utility of biologics for patients with severe asthma.
I would more strongly consider referral for biologic treatment in patients with high eosinophil count.       

Dr L, NSW

“These reports are going to help us revolutionise how we manage our high-risk asthma patients.

Dr. SK, VIC

Sample Asthma Risk Practice Report

As part of our audit, each clinic is provided with a totally interactive HTML report detailing the status of high risk asthma patients.

Patient Level Report

We recognise that change can only happen at a patient level. As such, we provide practices with individual patient reports for Asthma and COPD. These reports are accessible on practice computers via our bespoke Optimum Patient Care Tools software. Along with receiving a user-guide on how to use Optimum Patient Care Tools, our service team will provide support on accessing your patient level reports and using our tools.

Individual patient reports support clinicians with face-to-face patient consultations. They help identify high-risk patients and other specific patient groups for review and intervention to optimise their care. Each patient has a personalised feedback section which can be provided to them as a self-management plan which is based on OPC researchers, epidemiologists and national guidelines.
