The average American doctor sees 2,000 patients per year. On paper, each patient’s information is locked, and the doctor has no ability to look across their patient population to see who’s in need of critical care.
Practice Fusion is rolling out the first phase of the program this month, which will cover vaccines recommended for adult patients. The need for this program is dire: more than 40,000 adults die each year in the U.S. from vaccine-preventable diseases (Source: Healthy People 2020,www.HealthyPeople.Gov). The alerts we send tell doctors that one or more of their patients may be due for a critical vaccination.
This phased program is part of our larger company mission to connect doctors, patients and data to drive better health and save lives.
