August is National Immunization Awareness Month

 

A friendly reminder from UHC:

Now is the perfect time to increase awareness about the benefits of vaccinations as it coincides with back to school appointments, sports physicals, and the beginning of flu season when many members will be interacting with their providers.  Vaccinations can save lives, prevent severe morbidity and lower healthcare costs.  From an NCQA perspective UnitedHealthcare Commercial focuses on the Childhood Immunization Status (CIS) and Immunizations for Adolescents (IMA) HEDIS measures.  You can learn more about the CIS and IMA HEDIS measures by reviewing the attached resources. 

 

You can identify UnitedHealthcare members who are due for these specific vaccinations through use of the Patient Care Opportunity Report (PCOR).  See the attachment for more information on PCOR as well as the following link:  https://www.uhcprovider.com/pcor
