About The Study: In this randomized clinical trial that included 945 patients ages 6 to 17, outreach messages delivered via electronic health record patient portals increased the rates of scheduling and completing well child care visits and receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, providing a useful tool to help restore well child care in populations whose care was delayed during the pandemic.
