Flu Shot Express
For employers with hundreds or thousands of healthcare workers, Flu Shot Express is an easy way to automate the vaccination process and save time when compared to making individual appointments.

New York, NY (PRWEB) June 03, 2014

Mobile Health announces a new way for healthcare organizations to increase employee participation and decrease the administrative burden of managing an organizational flu shot program. Their new automatic flu shot scheduling system allows employers to schedule a large number of employees for a flu vaccine automatically through their Flu Shot Express program.

With automatic scheduling, employers are able to upload a list of employees and Mobile Health will automatically schedule and notify each individual for an express flu shot appointment at one of Mobile Health’s 6 locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Staten Island, and Hempstead. Appointment notification letters are sent 4 weeks before the employee’s scheduled date and time. The appointments are conveniently available weekday evenings and weekend days. Most appointments take less than 15 minutes.

In 2013, Mobile Health offered over 250 hours dedicated to Flu Shot Express appointments across their 6 locations. For 2014, they are planning to at least double available time to over 500 hours.

Within the scheduling system, clients have a variety of tools and resources to help them better manage their flu vaccination program. Some important reports include:

  •     Upcoming appointment reports.
  •     Report of employees who missed their appointment.
  •     Detailed medical reports of all vaccinated.

The innovation of automatic scheduling and Flu Shot Express is a direct response to recent New York Department of Health regulations promoting influenza vaccines for health care workers. For employers with hundreds or thousands of healthcare workers, Flu Shot Express is an easy way to automate the vaccination process and save time when compared to making individual appointments.

The process is as easy as logging into the Mobile Health Client Portal and uploading a list of employees with location preferences, if available. Once uploaded, Mobile Health will automatically schedule the employees during Flu Shot Express hours and will mail each employee a letter detailing the appointment information. Clients can then review all scheduled appointments along with the ability to manage individual appointments for changes.

As a turn-key solution, all corporate flu shot clients are assigned a dedicated flu representative who will oversee their program and ensure successful planning, execution, and reporting of all vaccines administered. A flu vaccination marketing workshop will also be held in August where Mobile Health will present different ways employers can increase company participation.

For organizations with a centralized workforce in one location, Mobile Health’s scheduler can also be used for on-site programs. Once selecting a date and time, an employer can auto schedule their entire workforce to attend a Mobile Health on-site flu vaccination clinic at their worksite. The same reporting features are available for the on-site program and Flu Shot Express.

Mobile Health is an occupational health provider with a special focus on employee screening services. With six locations in Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and Hempstead, Mobile Health is a regional provider of drug tests, employment physicals, and other employee health related services. Mobile Health clients can schedule appointments and retrieve results online though a HIPAA compliant web-based portal. For more information, visit http://www.mobilehealth.net.
