Computation description:

Proportion of regular clients who are Indigenous, aged 15 and over who are recorded as having Type II diabetes and have had an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) recorded AND/OR an albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR) or other microalbumin test result recorded within the previous 12 months AND proportion of regular clients who are Indigenous, aged 15 and over who are recorded as having cardiovascular disease (CVD) and have had an eGFR recorded within the previous 12 months.

‘Regular client’ refers to a client of an Australian Government Department of Health-funded primary health-care service (that is required to report against the Indigenous primary health care key performance indicators) who has an active medical record; that is, a client who has attended the Department of Health-funded primary health-care service at least 3 times in 2 years.

A client is recorded as having Type II diabetes or CVD if on the clinical record the service has recorded a condition or condition code that the system considers to be Type II diabetes or CVD.

Calculated separately for Type II diabetes and CVD.

Presented as a percentage.

Computation:

(Numerator ÷ Denominator) x 100

Numerator:

Calculation A: Number of regular clients who are Indigenous, aged 15 and over, are recorded as having Type II diabetes and have had an eGFR AND/OR an ACR or other microalbumin test result recorded within the previous 12 months.

Calculation B: Number of regular clients who are Indigenous, aged 15 and over, are recorded as having CVD and have had an eGFR recorded within the previous 12 months.
