New Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Check Templates in Bp Premier

Best Practice Software has now adopted the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO) & RACGP recommended activities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health checks. These will take the form of health check templates, and they’ll be available in the December update of Bp Premier.

There will be five new age-based templates:

Infants and Preschool (birth - 5 years old)

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Check Infant Template

Primary School Age (5-12 years old)

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Check Primary Children Template

Adolescents and Young People (12-24 years old)

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Check Young People Template

Adults (25-49 years old)

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Check Shop Template

Older People (50+ years old)

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Check Older People Template

These updated templates can support your team to identify patient health goals and priorities and to plan for follow up of identified health needs.

The three existing templates available in Bp Premier will remain available until March 2022 to support a smooth transition phase.

For more information, we encourage you to access the NACCHO-RACGP Resource hub which includes resources to support quality health checks.

We welcome your feedback on the updated templates.
