ACOG District XI Quality Improvement Project

From 2012-2015 ACOG National Collaborated with ACOG District XI (Texas) to complete quality improvement projects in 15 ob-gyn practices to increase adult immunization rates.

ACOG’s District XI was selected through a Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) grant funded to ACOG to participate in a project to help practices increase their immunization rates and build partnerships with the state health department’s immunization program. This project built on the success of a similar grant funded project in District V (Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, and Michigan), the results of which can viewed by clicking here.

This was a three-year project concluding August 2015.

All selected sites received free onsite training, education materials, and on-going assistance for specific vaccine-related issues from ACOG and the Texas Department of State Health Services.

Topics included:

  • Coding (reimbursement)
  • Ordering immunizations (Private and VFC)
  • Storage and handling
  • Giving Vaccines (consent/refusal/VAERS)
  • Immunization schedule for vaccines
  • Resources in your state

Requirements to Participate:

  • Ob-gyn must be an ACOG member
  • Provide a point person for all communications
  • Agree to complete a brief pretest at beginning of participation and post-test (3 months later) survey regarding vaccinations.
  • Sign an agreement with ACOG to participate in the program.
  • Participate in 45-60 minute on-site training for practice site
