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:
- Dropout Risk
- Hypo Rate
- Hyper Rate
- Marked High
- Marked Low
What is the Hyper Rate flag?
A Hyper Rate flag appears when a certain percentage (Glooko default: 25%) of the patient's glucose values over the past 14 days fall above a specified blood glucose value (Glooko default value: 180 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 via Settings will apply to the entire patient population. You may always 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's patient 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.
