A Test of Interventions to Address Immunizations Rates in a Family Medicine Clinic
Adult immunizations effectively reduce diseases. Despite this, it is difficult to convince patients to be vaccinated. We developed and implemented two different strategies, each deployed separately to improve our flu vaccination rates in two flu seasons. Data assayed from two seasons (2015-16 and 2016-17) show changes by approach used. Results suggest the strategy involving the most effort was no more effective than the lower effort strategy. These data are discussed in terms of appropriate metrics and future research.
