Driving Technology-Enhanced Immunization Outreach in the Los Angeles Safety-Net

Organization:
Los Angeles County Department of Health Services

The goal of this project is to increase the pneumococcal immunization rate for the underserved through a three‐pronged approach that includes: (1) an immunization protocol that expands which caregivers are able to vaccinate patients, (2) electronic identification of at‐risk adults, and (3) automated multi‐modal outreach and scheduling. Utilization of standardized Interdisciplinary Practice Approved protocols will enable non‐provider staff to order and administer pneumococcal vaccines safely, efficiently, and effectively.
