Organization:
Qsource

The goal of this research project is to test sustainable means for increasing pneumococcal immunizations among rural and minority adult patients in Tennessee (TN). This will be done by testing current strategies that include 1) systematic identification of at-risk patients via a programmed clinical decision support (CDS) rule in the electronic health record (EHR) and 2) a reminder notification sent via email through the patient portal.
