American College of Physicians Key Developments

American College of Physicians, CECity, and Pfizer collaborate to Increase Adult Immunization Rates

The American College of Physicians (ACP), CECity, and Pfizer Inc. have announced a new initiative designed to increase adult immunization rates by assisting physicians and other health care providers in strongly recommending appropriate vaccination and tracking adult immunization rates for quality measurement and improvement. The three organizations made the announcement during the annual National Adult Influenza and Immunization Summit meeting being held May 13-15 in Atlanta. The goal of this public health initiative is to meet the National Vaccine Advisory Committee's standards for adult immunization. The standards call on all health care providers to assess vaccine status at each visit, strongly recommend vaccinations to patients, administer or refer for immunization, and document vaccination. Current vaccination rates for recommended vaccines in the U.S. fall far short of those goals, with all rates well below 70% and fraught with racial and ethnic disparities.(i) The program will encourage health care providers and practice teams to engage in ACP's Adult Immunization Registry available through CECity's MedConcert(R) portal, a cloud-based performance improvement platform. With funding from Pfizer and the experience and resources from the three organizations, the program will be piloted in two states with the goal to broaden the effort nationwide.
