Paxlovid Eligibility Search

Paxlovid eligibility EMR search*

 

These searches have been developed by our our team and use EMR data to find patients who are eligible to be tested and assessed for COVID-19 antiviral treatments (i.e. Paxlovid).

 

 

 

Important notes:

  • If individuals identified by these searches don’t have a recent serum creatinine this may present an opportunity to order this for the highest risk patients while they are well
  • The ultimate decision for treatment is to be determined by the clinician and patient; these searches only use the general eligibility criteria
  • Please note that due to variation in use of the EMR data, searches may pull up patients that do not meet the criteria and clinical review is required

We've created three different searches for TELUS PS Suite,  OSCAR, and Accuro, with details about the criteria for each seach included below the download buttons for your reference. Downloads are available below (or for Accuro, the searches can be found in the Global Alerts list):
