The Population Tracker now features a new Flags column in your Patient List for health systems utilizing the Population Health feature. Whenever a patient satisfies certain at-risk criteria, a new flag will display within this column. Currently, the flags are auto-updated on a daily basis at 8am PST/PDT.
There are 5 default flags that display in blue in the patient list:
What is the Hypo Rate flag?
A Hypo Rate flag appears when a certain percentage (Glooko default: 10%) of the patient's glucose values over the past 14 days fall below a specified blood glucose value (Glooko default: 70 mg/dL).
The percentage and glucose threshold may be modified from the default values to the desired values via the account Settings in Population Flag Settings. Flag thresholds adjusted in the Population Flag settings will apply to the entire population. You may revert to the default Glooko values for these flags by selecting Restore Default.
In addition, the thresholds can be modified for an individual patient, via the patient's settings on their Profile under Patient Flag Settings. You may also revert an individual patient's to the thresholds established in account settings by selecting Restore to Population Settings.
Creating Custom-Defined Flags
In addition to the default Glooko flags, healthcare providers can also create custom flags based on their own at-risk criteria. Once created, these flags will auto-update on a daily basis on the Population Tracker patient list.
Custom flags can be created via the Population Health platform which is accessible from the clinic dropdown on the top right. To learn more, see Population Health: Custom Cohorts.
