Summary of Results

  • Vaccination coverage: median increase of 18 percentage points (9 study arms)
  • These findings should be applicable to providers and staff in most healthcare settings where improvements in coverage are needed.
  • Additional provider reminders for other preventive services or clinical care can be included with those for vaccinations; this has the potential to increase delivery of these services or treatments.
  • All of the reminders in this review gave information to the provider at the time of a client’s scheduled appointment.
