NOTE: All queries are tested and validated prior to release. However, changes that take place after the queries are released may affect how accurate they are. Such changes could include EMR software updates, new medications, and changes to standard clinical definitions. They may result in false positives, that is, patients being flagged who do not have the specified condition. They may also result in false negatives, that is, patients not being flagged who do have the condition. Queries are also limited by the quality of your EMR data.

The D2D EMR Data Quality Diabetes Coded v1 searches (.srx files) will extract data neccessary to calculate the percent of patients with diabetes whose diagnosis is recorded with a code in the appropriate place in the EMR. Save these searches to your desktop and import into your EMR. You might need the help of your QIDSS, IT staff or other person who usually run queries in your EMR. This guide provides screenshots of the searches along with instructions on how to import the searches into your EMR.
