  • Adding Observations to Patient Records

    With the latest registry release, the process of documenting history of varicella disease (chickenpox) has changed. The system now uses “Observations” for documenting contraindications and precautions to receiving certain vaccinations. Our new guide provides step-by-step directions for documenting chickenpox and includes an example scenario for meningococcal b in the patient record. Click HERE to download!

  • Valuable Tool: Vaccine Utilization Report

    If you notice any discrepancies in your “Shots Recorded” and “Doses Administered” when placing your Vaccines for Children order, generate the Vaccine Utilization Report to help resolve the issue. The report will provide your organization’s vaccine usage details that have been entered, either manually or uploaded from your EHR, for a specified time period. As a best practice, you can generate this report on a weekly basis to ensure all the vaccines are being properly documented in Florida SHOTS and stay on top of managing your inventory.

  • Avoid the Creation of Duplicate Records!

    Duplicate patient records take time, effort, and resources to correct, but there are simple steps you can take to minimize these hassles. Remember if you discover a duplicate patient record, call the Florida SHOTS Help Desk to fix it rather than manipulating the record to make the records merge.
