o Selecting and Starting the Taskflow
o Opening and Updating the Patient Record
o Sending an SMS message to the patients

Importance of Hypertension
- High Blood Pressure is important and treatable
- Typically a reasonable number of patients:
o have not been coded or identified…
o hence cannot systematically receive care and treatment!

Taskflow Filter
- Has a shorter list of patients using Systolic Blood Pressure over 160 rather than 140:
o Shorter lists are more manageable
- Searches patients from Clinical Database for:
o Not coded as Hypertension
o Systolic Blood Pressure over 160
Professional Significance
- Establish Recalls and Blood Pressure Targets for ongoing management and care planning
- The new RACGP triennium emphasises clinical audits and reflective learning:
- Clinical Audits are made easy with the DCP

Closing Summary
The Uncoded Hypertension Taskflow:
- Helps identify important and treatable risk factors
