New functionality added to outpatient whiteboard for flu vaccines

The beginning of flu season brings with it a number of changes within the outpatient whiteboard (OPWB) that allow users to perform a number of key vaccine-related functions. 

These updates allow users to use the OPWB to:

  • Record an immunization received outside Vanderbilt
  • Order and administer a flu vaccine
  • Postpone the vaccine for reasons such as patient refusal
  • Permanently exclude the patient from flu vaccine plans (e.g., patient has a documented clinical contraindication)

View the Tip Sheet “OPWB: Flu Vaccines” (available within Learning Home Dashboard and Hubbl) for more information.
