University wins Award for Electronic Frailty Index
Faculty of Health Wins joint EHI award for Electronic Frailty Index.
Mohamed Mohammed, Professor of Healthcare Quality and Effectiveness in the Faculty of Health, is part of a UK collaboration who have developed a new electronic frailty index (eFI).
The partnership including Academic Unit of Elderly Care & Rehabilitation, University of Leeds/BIHR, University of Bradford /BIHR and the BIHR Improvement Academy, along with colleagues from TPP/SystmOne and University of Birmingham, won the prestigious national EHI award for Healthcare IT Product Innovation 2016 for the development, validation and implementation of the electronic frailty index (eFI). The eFI uses routinely available GP electronic health record data to identify the possible presence of frailty, and is being used across the UK to develop new, evidence-based models of care for older people with frailty.
