Tip Sheet: Encourage Patients to Receive Flu Shot

November 20, 2020

The Influenza Season 2020 is underway.  If a patient does not have a documented influenza vaccination in EPIC for this current flu season, nurses will receive a Best Practice Alert to address this required core measurement.  Addressing this BPA in the Visit or Admission Navigator would be ideal, however it may not be feasible at the time.   

To assist in addressing this requirement, the BPA has also been added to the Shift, Transfer and Discharge Navigators.  Now more than ever, please take a moment to explain and encourage your patients to receive the vaccination. 

The Influenza Season 2020 Tip Sheet is available for you to review here and can also be found in the Learning Home Dashboards within Epic.
