With the fall fast approaching, it’s time for us to start planning ahead for flu season.
As family doctors, we are tasked with maximizing influenza immunization rates for our patient population each year. Since it is such a simple, safe, and effective intervention, the provincial government even pays us a bonus depending on the percentage of our eligible patients who have been immunized.
Achieving this targets is challenging: some patients prefer to avoid needles; some are concerned based on misconceptions; others simply don’t make it into the clinic during the flu season. During a busy clinic, we sometimes even forget to offer the shot in the first place. Consequently, we often miss our targets, and we spend considerable office resources contacting patients to come in for their shot.3 easy ways to boost #patient #flushot rates in your clinic without more staff time or effort #digitalhealth #EMR Click To Tweet
