COVID-19 Clinical Risk Assessment Tool

An online tool that can help clinicians better understand how at-risk a person may be of catching coronavirus and being admitted to hospital or catching coronavirus and dying is now available.

The COVID-19 Clinical Risk Assessment Tool is powered by QCovid®, a coronavirus risk prediction model created by the University of Oxford. Clinicians can use the tool to risk assess individual patients or review those assessed as part of the COVID-19 population risk assessment. Details of patients who were risk assessed, but who did not meet the agreed threshold for addition to the Shielded Patient List, are now available for practices to review. There are instructions for individuals and practices to follow before using the tool, including the requirement for a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) and privacy notice in place that covers the tool’s use. A template DPIA and privacy notice have been provided to support this.
