Abstract : This report summarizes influenza activity among Department of Navy (DON) and Department of Defense (DOD) beneficiaries during the 2014-2015 influenza season. Using multiple electronic data sources (namely laboratory results, pharmacy transactions, immunization records, encounter and admission records, medical event reports) the impact of influenza on the DON beneficiary population was assessed and summarized. Each data source enabled the evaluation from a different clinical perspective, and further allows for the determination of the relationship between the sources.
