Function-Specific Resolved Issues


Patient Chart / Immunizations

Issue:

OP 14 was indicating a 2nd dose of the flu vaccine as being due when a patient had received accurate dosing based on CDC-timeframe guidelines.

With this issue, if a patient had received two appropriate doses of the flu vaccine for the previous year’s flu season and came to the Practice for the 1st dose of the vaccine for the current year’s flu season, OP 14 forecasted that the patient was due for a booster and cited one of the following reasons for the forecast:

  • Prior to the current season, no Hx of seasonal flu vaccine.
  • Prior to the current season, received only 1 dose of the trivalent or quadrivalent flu vaccine.

Resolution:

Updated the software to ensure that OP 14 forecasts flu vaccines correctly. With this update, flu-vaccine forecasting follows these CDC guidelines:

Has the child received 2 (or more) doses of trivalent or quadrivalent influenza vaccine before July 1, 2018 (Doses need not have been given during same or consecutive seasons):

  • Yes –  1 dose of 2018-19 influenza vaccine.
  • No – 2 doses of 2018-19 influenza vaccine (administered 4+ weeks apart).
