Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) August 21, 2014
CQIIP, Continuous Quality Immunization Improvement Process, was created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of Defense. CQIIP assist facilities in assessing their compliance with the immunization standards and are administered in accordance with DOD policies and the CDC's General Recommendations on Immunizations.
ACC chose to adopt the program as one of the many procedures in place to protect patients, improve efficiency, and increase the speed and accessibility to medical records. ACC felt it was mandatory to implement this certification program as part of its SOP’s due to the potential impact on national security. The CQIIP evaluation provides ACC Health with a quality control tool to self-assess their immunization processes and ensure compliance with the 8 Standards for Military Immunization. The tool helps to identify areas of improvement and provides the healthcare personnel with a detailed evaluation of their immunization administration processes. From storage, handling and immunization availability, to record keeping and vaccine advocacy protecting the military family, CQIIP will help keep our military healthy and informed.
“We don’t believe in cutting corners, and if there is a program available that will help us improve our business and medical practices, we are going to look into it. This should be a requirement for all companies who administer immunizations. Our nurses are MILVAX trained and we have a QA process in place to assure we are meeting the high quality standards set by DOD” said Ginny Berger, CEO of ACC.
