Good afternoon,
I use MedTech32 almost everyday. The recent CVD risk assessment is 
incorporated with diabetes risk assessment but not 3 month diabetic 
check-up one. CVD risk assessment actually adjust risk and recall 
patient for 3 monthly, 6 monthly, annual or every 5 yrs, best on the 
data that we input in this new form (observation data). Few old things 
are automatically populates (such as previous BP the most recent one and 
medication information). The other blood test factors (HDL, LDL, total 
cholesterol and more are new results and we enter at the time of patient 
assessment. It again adjust risk for recall. There are wizard to enter 
data automatically, while referral patient to other provider.
We can do more modification it looks though.
