Types of Patient Groups

System Groups

System groups are prefixed with $ and followed by 3 letters which vary depending on the origin of the group:

  • Generated from Clinical Audit
    Audit Searches - $AUD or $QAU, $INT, $QOF, $QPY
    Audit Sub-searches - $SUB or $GLO, $QFS, $QPS
  • MIQUEST groups and other System groups
    Patient and GP system groups - prefixed $PAT

User Groups

These are created in the practice by:

  • Searches and Reports output.
  • Within Patient Groups, either by combining two existing groups, adding patients to an existing group or creating a new group.
  • If you make a system group into the Work Group, then save the Work Group with a new name and description, it becomes a user group.
