Health System Spotlight with Kaiser: Improving Vaccination Rates Among Caner Patients
On the June 25th QI and Data Leads call, Kaiser Permanente presented on their work to improve vaccination rates among cancer patients at their location. Dr. Lisa Law, the physician champion for a project to improve vaccination rates among cancer patients, discussed their efforts in South Sacramento. They aimed to increase flu vaccination rates from 13% to 33% by December 2023. They implemented various strategies like offering vaccinations on-site, training staff, and tracking patient data. By the end of the 90-day project, they exceeded their goal with a 36% vaccination rate. Nurse Manager Kristy Hill led the initiative, emphasizing team engagement, convenience for patients, and creating a friendly competition among staff. Their success led to an invitation to share their best practices with other medical centers. The project's impact highlighted the importance of small changes and teamwork in achieving significant results in healthcare initiatives.
