You can start using the Digital Health Passport following the following easy steps:
What you will need:
Welcome email confirming your practice shortcode
Accurx or similar SMS batch message provider
Step 1: Create your chort from your Electronic Health Record System
Select a target patient cohort (aged 14 to 18 years old inclusive) who are on the QOF register of patients with asthma (e.g. Patients with asthma who have been prescribed asthma related drugs in the preceding 12 months).
Step 2: Create SMS Templates for the Digital Health Passport
Create two practice templates within Accurx (or other SMS message system):
1. Digital Health Passport Invitation
2. Asthma Action Plan & Digital Health Passport Invitation
You will need to put your practice shortcode in as the download link which will be in your welcome email (e.g. dgtlhealthpass.app.link/X00000).
