Vaccination Programs: Provider Reminders
Description of Resource:
The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends provider reminders to increase vaccination rates among adults, adolescents, and children; when used alone or with additional interventions; across a range of intervention characteristics (e.g., computerized or simple reminders, checklists, flowcharts); and in a range of settings and populations. Provider reminders inform those who administer vaccinations that individual clients are due for specific vaccinations. Techniques by which reminders are delivered vary, but may include notes prepared in advance and posted in client charts, alerts in electronic medical records, or letters sent by mail or email.
