THE CHILDREN’S TRUST

Support Staff Training 2009

support staff goals
SUPPORT STAFF GOALS
  • Accurate record keeping/maintenance
  • Determining client for VFC Program eligibility
  • Manage electronic record database
  • Maintain adequate vaccine supply on hand
  • Maintain adequate office/medical support supply on hand
  • Maintain current knowledge onimmunization guidelines/mandates
documentation
DOCUMENTATION
  • Prepare medical record
  • Obtain accurate demographical information
  • Accurately transcribe immunization history
  • Manual immunization information = electronic immunization information
  • Determine VFC eligibility
  • Maintain real time manual and electronic immunization data to prevent errors
  • Make readily available information for Health Department staff Co-CASA/AFIX Reviews
immunization information
IMMUNIZATION INFORMATION
  • Obtain accurate historical immunization
  • Information must be from credible source (medical record, personal immunization record book with a doctor’s office stamp, titers)
  • Cannot be word-of-mouth
  • May need to be translated to English (cannot be maintained in any other language in the USA)
  • Input accurate data into electronic database (“junk in-junk out”)
slide5
WHY?
  • Reminder/recall system
  • Outbreak control
  • Decreases vaccine wastage
  • Decreases missed opportunities to vaccinate
  • Decreases possibility of duplications
problems with historical immunization records
PROBLEMS WITH HISTORICAL IMMUNIZATION RECORDS
  • Roman numerals (XIV, IV, etc.)
  • Reversed dates (day/month/year)
  • Foreign languages (have to translate what type of vaccine was administered)
  • Vaccine administered is not required in the US, so still missing vaccines
  • Date written is prior to the child’s first birthday
vfc program requirements
VFC PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS
  • Must practice the Standards for Child and Adolescent Immunization Practices
  • Must follow the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) guidelines
  • Highly encouraged to adopt the Florida State Health Online Tracking Systems (FLSHOTS)/”The Registry”
  • Participate in routine Co-CASA/AFIX Reviews to ensure that all VFC Program requirementsare being followed
what is the vfc program
WHAT IS THE VFC PROGRAM?

The Vaccines for Children Program is a federally-funded program established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to allow participating medical providers to offer free vaccines to eligible children between the ages of 0 months through 18 years of age.

what is vfc eligibility
WHAT IS VFC ELIGIBILITY?

A child is determined to be “VFC Eligible” when he/she is one of the following:

- Eligible for Medicaid

- Uninsured

- Underinsured

- American Indian

- Alaskan Native

what is co casa afix
WHAT IS CO-CASA/AFIX?

Co-CASA/AFIX is a database-driven assessment tool known as Comprehensive-Clinic Assessment Software Application that is computer-based to review a medical provider’s accuracy in following the ACIP-driven immunization schedule for persons 0-6 years of age. It is used along with the AFIX strategies known as Assessment, Feedback, Incentives and eXchange of information provided to the medical providers in means of improving the quality of immunization practices noted per the assessment so that all children are completely and appropriately immunized on time per the CDC-mandated guidelines. These tools (Co-CASA/AFIX) may be tailored to be used for any age. However, at this time, the CDC has been focusing on children 2 years of age and under as children who have successfully completed their primary immunization series on or before their second birthday are at least 90% likely to receive their booster vaccines for Kindergarten and Seventh grade entry.

what is flshots
WHAT IS FLSHOTS?

The Florida State Health Online Tracking System (FLSHOTS), also known as “The Registry,” is a computerized database for warehousing immunization records of anyone who has received immunizations through any of the 67 County Health Departments. It has expanded to include the military and is now including medical providers who participate in the VFC Program. The goal is to accumulate and store the immunization records of all residents and visitors to the State of Florida and link this database to the national registry/information system. Ultimately, this will reduce the cost of vaccines paid by the CDC by limiting/eliminating vaccine wastage, managing vaccine inventories, determining and controlling outbreaks, reducing missed opportunities to vaccinate and educating providers on the strategies to improve their immunization rates thus ensuring a protected community from communicable disease.

MEDICAL RECORD
what is the vis
WHAT IS THE VIS?

The Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) is an informational sheet educating the client or legal representative of a minor of the benefits and risks of a vaccine. This form is created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in multiple languages besides English (E). In Florida, we mainly add Spanish (S) and Haitian Creole (C). This is in accordance with Federal Law: 42 U.S.C. §300aa-26.

federal law
FEDERAL LAW

It is mandated by federal law that every provider who administers vaccines must give the VIS of each vaccine being administered at every visit no matter how many times the vaccine is administered. Along with the VIS, the provider must explain the benefits and risks and ensure that the client or legal representative understands all that is being explained to them and is allowed to ask questions thereafter. Both the VIS and the verbal information must be in the client’s primary language – the language that they read and/or speak primarily and comfortably. The VIS must also be the most current version available – they are all dated.
