Issue with QRISK2 Calculator in SystmOne

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has instructed TPP practices not to use the QRISK®2 Calculator in SystmOne until further notice.

If you run TPP in your practice you can use the QRISK®2-2016 Calculator on the QRISK website which is not affected by this issue.

MHRA is working with TPP to make sure the identified issue is resolved and that any affected patients are identified.

The calculator is a predictive algorithm used to assess the potential risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients, as part of their overall evaluation. This issue has resulted in incorrect results being produced for a proportion of patients. For the affected patients, the potential risk of CVD could have been under or overstated.

Clinical advice received by MHRA indicates the risk to individual patients is small and affects only a limited group of patients who should be re-evaluated at their next routine appointment.

TPP will be in communication with practices to inform them of any patients who may be affected.

If you have any enquiries please contact DSS-TM@mhra.gsi.gov.uk.
