October Live Webinars: Florida SHOTS Reminder/Recall

To support providers in protecting patients from measles, we have scheduled live trainings to demonstrate reminder/recall for MMR. Our upcoming “Florida SHOTS Reminder/Recall” sessions will 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 dose due)
  • Downloading or printing the report as well as creating mailing labels to send vaccine reminder notices to parents

Protect Your Patients Against Measles Using Reminder Recall

According to the CDC, there have been 124 cases of measles across 22 states—with a growing number of confirmed cases in Florida. Florida SHOTS can help you protect your patients and prevent a major outbreak in our state by running a reminder recall assessment for MMR.

Check out our Reminder/Recall guide and recorded webinar for step-by-step instructions for running this report and bringing in patients who are not fully vaccinated.

LIVE Webinar: Florida SHOTS Reports

During this month’s live webinar sessions, we will demonstrate how to create, view and print several helpful reports in Florida SHOTS. These include the Vaccine Utilization Report that provides vaccine usage for a specified time period, Religious Exemptions to view patients with religious exemptions, and the Patient Status that lists the patients for which your organization is the Current Immunization Provider (CIP).

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. And, Click HERE to check out ways you can prevent creating duplicate records!

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.

LIVE Webinar: Back-to-School Basics

Join us for this month’s live webinar sessions to help you prepare for the back-to-school rush!

And, as always, we will host our monthly “New User and Refresher Overview” webinar for new users or those who need a refresher and “Data Quality Reports” for data upload participants to ensure that your vaccine records are uploading successfully.
