Summary

• This study will assess the effect of promotional messaging and incentives encouraging influenza vaccination in the Sendero IdealCare policy holders during the 2018-2019 Flu Season. The intervention will consist of influenza vaccination promotion/reminders from Sendero Health Plans to subscribers, including text messages, emails, and tailored direct mail outs, i.e. postcard or a personalized letter, and incentive. The study population consists of approximately 22,500 subscribers enrolled in Sendero IdealCare Plan. The intervention will last approximately four months. The primary endpoints, assessed through administrative claims data, will be getting a flu shot during the 2018-2019 season. Data collected through this study will be used to determine effective components of influenza vaccination promotion campaigns used by a health insurance plan.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Group activities directed against VACCINATION.

Rate of VACCINATION as defined by GEOGRAPHY and or DEMOGRAPHY.

Species of the genus INFLUENZAVIRUS B that cause HUMAN INFLUENZA and other diseases primarily in humans. Antigenic variation is less extensive than in type A viruses (INFLUENZA A VIRUS) and consequently there is no basis for distinct subtypes or variants. Epidemics are less likely than with INFLUENZA A VIRUS and there have been no pandemics. Previously only found in humans, Influenza B virus has been isolated from seals which may constitute the animal reservoir from which humans are exposed.

Membrane glycoproteins from influenza viruses which are involved in hemagglutination, virus attachment, and envelope fusion. Fourteen distinct subtypes of HA glycoproteins and nine of NA glycoproteins have been identified from INFLUENZA A VIRUS; no subtypes have been identified for Influenza B or Influenza C viruses.

Refusal to receive VACCINATION.
