The purpose of IQIP is to promote and support the implementation of provider-level quality improvement strategies designed to increase vaccine uptake among childhood and adolescent patients in adherence to the ACIP-recommended routine schedule.
Every year in Washington State 250 clinics participate in the IQIP process. It was formerly known as the Assessment, Feedback, Incentives and eXchange (AFIX) program. During the past years, many providers were assisted in implementing evidence based quality improvement strategies to increase their immunization rates, qualify for the Immunize WA Award and meet HEDIS immunization measures for Childhood and Adolescents.
