National Influenza Survey Open Enrollment

Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

AHCA announced that a team of nationally recognized long term care researchers from Brown University led by Stefan Gravenstein, MD, MPH, and Vincent Mor, PhD, are undertaking a large-scale quality improvement study to evaluate the impact of the annual influenza vaccine on long term care residents' hospitalization risk for the 2018 influenza season. NYSHFA is encouraging our members to strongly consider participating in this project. We have thought over time that our high vaccination rates have had positive effects on residents in our care. This may be a nice way to prove the cause and effect and demonstrate quality of care in SNF in NYS. Please see attached contact information to participate of clarify questions you may have.
