As in the U.S., California has significant disparities, with lower vaccination rates among low-income women. Infants born to women with Medi-Cal coverage have more than twice the risk of pertussis than those who are privately insured. CIC is delighted about a new HEDIS measurement. It assesses maternal Tdap and influenza vaccination levels.
CIC believes this new measure is important and should be used by everyone. We developed a letter with steps our partners can take to adopt the new measure in their organizations.
The letter includes:
Steps for health plans (commercial and Medi-Cal)
Steps for local immunization coalitions and health departments
Steps for medical groups, healthcare facilities and health systems
Steps for Everyone
