Galen eCalcs - Calculator: Tufts DPP Risk Estimator
This is a calculator designed to accompany a research study driven by Tufts University that is investigating the relative risk reduction of adopting a DPP lifestyle on type 2 diabetes onset.
This calculator was not designed for client-wide utilization and is not recommended to use this calculator unless the organization is part of the study.
Target patients are prediabetic patients aged 25-75.
Calculator Configuration Options
|Preference Name||Valid Range||Description|
|Publishing||Checked / Unchecked||When checked the calculator will display for users on the front end. |
When unchecked, the calculator WILL NOT display for users on the front end.
|Fasting Blood Glucose Warning||Text|
|Inputs Maximum Days Age||Numeric||Threshold for the number of days away an input can have been processed from today. Default is 730 days (2 years). Set to 0 or leave blank to allow all inputs to be valid, regardless of when they were taken.|
|Lab Differential Threshold||Numeric||Threshold for the number of minutes away a blood glucose can have been collected from a fasting lab.|
|Orderable Item Override||(BLANK)/G-DPP||“(BLANK)” indicates that the global configuration options for Orderable Item will be used. |
“G-DPP” indicates that the calculator specific value will be used and can display the specific calculator name in the output.
|Save Discrete Results||True/False||When True, saves the questions and results of the calculator discretely when saving the results of the calculator.|
|Use Blood Glucose Fasting Logic||True/False||True (default) - non-fasting blood glucose labs will be processed as if they had been recorded as fasting provided that it was taken within the acceptable differential threshold. False - the fasting blood glucose input must be used, and non-fasting value will be ignored.|
