Impact of Electronic Health Record-Based Alerts on Influenza Vaccination for Children With Asthma

A prospective, cluster-randomized trial of the use of a flu-shot reminder alert in pediatric primary care, showing only modest effects. Vaccination opportunities in children with asthma increased from 14.4% to 18.6% at intervention sites and from 12.7% to 16.3% at control sites, a 0.6% greater improvement. The authors conclude that if one is using an immunization reminder system, “the addition of an influenza reminder system may be helpful, especially in the setting of urban resident-teaching practices.”
