Effect of Aboriginality on Recall Generation

Automated recalls can be restricted to those who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander.

If Aboriginal Only is set on Automated Recall Types, recalls are generated only when a patient's Aboriginality is set to:

  • Aboriginal but not Torres Strait Islander
  • Torres Strait Islander but not Aboriginal
  • Both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander

Other Automated Recall Types are generated without regard to a patient's Aboriginality.

If the patient's aboriginality is altered, existing On Registration recalls are deleted and recreated. However, other recalls that have been suppressed on the basis of patient aboriginality will not be recreated. This is unlikely to be significant since aboriginality filters are rarely needed on OnCompletion or OnPresentation recalls.
