  • The More You Put Into Florida Shots, the More You Get Out

    Accurate, complete, and timely data entry not only results in more complete records for patients, it increases provider trust, improves patient health, and leads to improvements in clinical practices. Maximize demographic information you include in each patient record (for example, including a parent’s first and last name), and you’ll minimize chances for duplicate records and inaccurate patient data.

    Protecting Your Patients Against Measles Using Reminder Recall

    According to the CDC, from January 1 to January 30, 2015, 102 people from 14 states were reported to have measles. Florida Department of Health needs your help to prevent a major measles outbreak in the state. We are asking all Florida SHOTS users to run a reminder recall assessment for MMR in order to call in patients who are not fully vaccinated.

    To support these efforts, we have scheduled two live trainings to demonstrate reminder recall for MMR. Additionally, we have created a guide with screenshots that show step-by-step instructions as well as a recorded webinar about reminder recall.

    “Protecting Your Patients Against Measles Using Reminder Recall” sessions cover:

    • Running reports that show a list of your patients who are due or overdue for MMR
    • Refining and sorting patient lists in a variety of ways (e.g., by type of shot)
    • Downloading or printing the report as well as creating mailing labels to send vaccine reminder notices to parents
