With preparations already underway for the 2016–2017 flu season, this is an ideal time to look further into the correlation between pneumonia and influenza—especially in urgent care, where respiratory illness is the number-one diagnosis code recorded. Pneumonia is the most common complication of influenza, and leads to significant morbidity and mortality, with the elderly and patients with comorbid conditions being most at risk. Glenn Harnett, MD will lead a discussion of this deadly combination in The Seasonal Challenges of Urgent Care Centers: Pneumonia—The Hidden Risk of Influenza, a free, one-hour webinar supported by Alere on September 27, 2016, 1:00 pm, Eastern time. There is no cost to participate, but registration is required. To view the recorded webinar after the live event, click here.
