December 6-12 is being observed as 2015’s National Influenza Vaccination Week. For many healthcare organizations, it’s a reminder to educate patients on the importance of their flu vaccination and what steps they need to take to get it.

A challenge for many providers is communicating about the vaccination to a large patient population, and many have found a solution in using outbound automated messages to promote vaccine availability. Click HERE to learn how that approach allows for personal communication on a patient-specific level without overwhelming staff.
Using automated messages to promote flu vaccination allows you to include some key educational facts about the need for vaccination along with the steps patients should take to get scheduled or stop in for a walk-in appointment. You can allow direct transfers from phone calls to help patients conveniently schedule their appointment or connect with the staff to have their questions answered.
If you haven’t yet tried using automated messages to promote flu vaccinations to patients, National Influenza Vaccination Week is a perfect time to get started!
