SNOMED CT terms that will cause the yellow message box to display
|Snomed CT Concept ID
||Relevant SCR section
||COVID-19 confirmed by laboratory test
||SARS-CoV-2 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2) RNA (ribonucleic acid) detection result positive
||'Investigation Results' OR 'Clinical Observations and Findings'
||COVID-19 confirmed using clinical diagnostic criteria
Four of these terms relate to whether the patient has a diagnosis of confirmed COVID-19 based on laboratory test results or clinical diagnostic criteria. The fifth term relates to whether the patient has suspected COVID-19, which will include assessments by NHS 111 telephone service.
Negative test results and other COVID-19 related information may be present on a patient’s SCR, however the yellow message box will not be displayed to signpost to this information.
Patients will be aware of their test results in advance of their GP being notified. It will take time for the data to flow through to the GP record and the SCR. There may be occasions where the GP record and the SCR are not updated with the COVID-19 results received by individuals, for example, where it was not possible to ascertain the NHS number from the information provided to the test centre.
