What does this Florey do?

The Accurx HRT Review Florey allows the sending of an online questionnaire to patients to collect information in regard their hormone replacement therapy in order to facilitate the review of their treatment regime.

The questionnaire link is sent via SMS or email. The patient fills in the questionnaire through a browser so can use their phone, tablet, laptop or desktop to complete it.

The responses are returned to the practice and can be saved directly into the clinical record (EMIS or SystmOne) as a coded entry. The responses can have additional notes added, be assigned to other colleagues and be marked as urgent.

What does it look like for the clinician and patient?

F.A.Q's

Why do you not include the 'Hormone replacement therapy review' SNOMED code?

We don't add this code as the HRT review isn't completed through the questionnaire alone. Review of the information by a clinician is required, who will then make a decision on the correct course of action.
