Adult Immunization (AI) Best Practices Learning Collaborative

As part of its mission to empower AMGA members to improve health and health care, AMGA Foundation, the nonprofit arm of AMGA, facilitates signature programs such as its Best Practices Learning Collaboratives. These shared-learning programs compile evidence of and share best practices based on quantitative data generated by AMGA members.

The Adult Immunization (AI) Best Practices Learning Collaborative brings together AMGA member organizations to improve adult immunization rates for pneumococcal and influenza, thereby reducing the clinical and economic burden of these vaccine-preventable diseases. The Collaborative has three groups of participants.

Seven AMGA members participated in the pilot Collaborative (Group 1). These organizations worked together from February 2015 to April 2016 and achieved improved vaccination rates during the 14-month period.

One focus of the Collaborative centered on the new CDC guidelines for pneumococcal vaccines in patients age 65 and older. The Collaborative was successful in increasing rates of compliance with the guidelines from 4 percent to 34 percent over the course of the 14-month intervention period.

Based on the success achieved by participants, AMGA Foundation is launching the next two groups of participants, including up to 40 AMGA member organizations, in 2017 (Groups 2 and 3).
