Immunizations

Fifty to 70 percent of flu-related hospitalizations and 80 to 90 percent of flu-related deaths occur in people aged 65 years and older.

Overview

The Telligen QIN-QIO partners with healthcare providers to achieve 70 percent immunization rates for flu and 90 percent immunization rates for pneumonia within the Illinois senior population.

Our work:

  • Provides you with quality improvement resources and education on immunization best practices.
  • Extends technical assistance to help you analyze and understand available data reports.
  • Helps improve public quality ratings (example: five-star ratings).
  • Creates collaborative opportunities with healthcare peers to share success stories, lessons learned and strategic action plans to improve immunization rates.
