Overcoming challenges to providing adult immunizations in healthcare systems

Thursday, August 31, 2017 | 10:00-11:00 am CT (11:00am-12:00pm ET)

Strategically executed preventive care initiatives and timely medical interventions can have a significant effect on care outcomes, which can be particularly valuable under outcome-based reimbursement models. Adult immunization initiatives have the potential to be a cost-effective preventative care strategy for hospitals. As the healthcare landscape becomes more focused on population health management, health systems can optimize the use of evidence-based strategies including adult vaccines to improve outcomes for vulnerable patient populations like adults over the age of 65 years.
