This article discusses a quality improvement project across four NP-owned primary care clinics in which all clinical staff received an educational intervention focused on best vaccination practices and Medicare billing strategies. This project yielded improved vaccination rates in the older adult patient population over a 3-month period.

As chair of general pediatrics for a large medical group, I knew our HPV vaccination rates back in 2016 were low, but didn ’t completely understand why. I’m here to share how we figured it out, and how we improved. The first task was to understand the barriers, and we went straight to the front line. […]Find jobs at Careers by KevinMD.com.

Authors: Chen Y, Wen Y Abstract In 2013 in mainland China, a novel avian influenza virus H7N9 began to infect humans and had aroused severe fatality in the infected humans, followed by the annual outbreaks. By methods of GIS and kriging interpolation, we get the geographical distributions. We obtain the longitudinal characteristics of these outbreaks based on statistics and diagrams. After these spatiotemporal distributions, an eco-epidemiological model is established and analyzed. In this model, the general incidence functions, the factor of fully killed infected poultry, and the virus in environment are taken int...
Authors: Liu K, Zhang T, Chen L Abstract In this paper, the state-dependent pulse vaccination and therapeutic strategy are considered in the control of the disease. A pulse system is built to model this process based on an SI ordinary differential equation model. At first, for the system neglecting the impulse effect, we give the classification of singular points. Then for the pulse system, by using the theory of the semicontinuous dynamic system, the dynamics is analyzed. Our analysis shows that the pulse system exhibits rich dynamics and the system has a unique order-1 homoclinic cycle, and by choosing p as the c...
Authors: Argondizo-Correia C, Rodrigues AKS, de Brito CA Abstract Bordetella pertussis is the bacterial agent of whooping cough, an infectious disease that is reemerging despite high vaccine coverage. Newborn children are the most affected, not only because they are too young to be vaccinated but also due to qualitative and quantitative differences in their immune system, which makes them more susceptible to infection and severe manifestations, leading to a higher mortality rate comparing to other groups. Until recently, prevention consisted of vaccinating children in the first year of life and the herd vaccination...
