The annual flu vaccine task targets patients eligible for the annual influenza vaccine who have not yet received it according to claims files. DocStation works closely with the payer to ensure the appropriate patients are targeted and pharmacists are notified of the opportunity to intervene as quickly as possible.

When addressing the annual flu vaccine task, the pharmacist should review the patient's vaccine history. Within task workflow, document the type and date of any influenza vaccines received in the calendar year. If the patient has not yet received their annual vaccination, you may administer in the pharmacy if available or coordinate care to ensure the patient receives their vaccine from another care provider.

You can also jot down notes or indicate any related items from other sections of the profile as needed, like conditions or drug therapy problems.

Once you've captured all the pertinent details, click "Continue" to automatically generate applicable documents (like eCare Plans for CPESN member pharmacies), or click "Save and Close" if you want to pause your work and come back to it later.

As always, DocStation relies on the pharmacist's knowledge of the patient when it comes to relevancy of tasks, so if a task is not relevant to the patient, or if the patient refuses the consultation, or something else comes up that prevents you from completing the task, you can archive it instead. Select the (...) icon on the right side of the task card, then select "Archive" and choose the most applicable reason. Then select "Archive Task". If you've already started the task but decide to archive it instead, select the same (...) menu and select "Archive".
