  10. Open the email and you will see your patient list; please refer to page 4 for more steps:

Each patient has a calculated ‘risk of hospitalisation score’. The score is generated by NSW Health to determine the probability of a patient having an unplanned hospitalisation over one year.
The scores have been categorised into groups – ‘low’, ‘medium’, ‘high’ and ‘very high’.

It is recommended that GPs consider patients with a ‘medium’, ‘high’ or ‘very high’ risk score for enrolment. However patient enrolment ultimately depends on the GP’s clinical judgement and GPs may also choose to enroll patients not on the list of patients with assigned risk scores.

NOTE: If you have NOT received an email, please ask your Practice Coordinator for support. (Please note that you would not have received an email if you are connected to secure messaging using Argus).
