IQIP: Immunization Quality Improvement for Providers

The health care providers participating in the Vaccines for Children (VFC) Program have the quality improvement program, IQIP, implemented by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

To improve performance, quality improvement programs analyze processes and use systematic approaches. The following QI processes include the steps:

  • State the problem and desired result

  • Use data to understand the problem

  • Identify improvement strategies

  • Implement strategies and refine as necessary

 

​The Purpose of IQIP: To promote and support provider-level implementation of quality improvement strategies.


​​​The strategies are designed to increase vaccine uptake among child and adolescent patients in adherence to the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendations.
