Continuous Quality Immunization Improvement Process (CQIIP) and Virtual Continuous Quality Immunization Improvement Process (VCQIIP)

The Continuous Quality Immunization Improvement Process (CQIIP) and Virtual Continuous Quality Immunization Improvement Process (VCQIIP) are NOT inspections; they are valuable resources to assist immunization sites with providing their stakeholders with the best practices available for immunization delivery utilizing the Eight Standards for Military Immunization.  The main difference between a CQIIP and VCQIIP is that the CQIIP is an on-site visit, while the VCQIIP visit utilizes telephone, email, video and teleconferencing. Both CQIIP and VCQIIPs provide immunization sites with resources and guidance to enhance quality and safety in meeting their mission of immunization delivery.

CQIIPThey were developed in accordance with Department of Defense policy and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). The Defense Health Agency Immunization Healthcare Branch (DHA IHB) has 17 Immunization Healthcare Specialists (IHSs) geographically located around the world to assist with getting started with the CQIIP. 

The CQIIP/VCQIIP Customer Tool asks questions about each of the Eight Standards to help identify areas of improvement and provide an understanding of the current processes of an immunization program. An IHS then reviews the answers and coordinates a site visit to assist in implementing a safe and effective program, to share best practices, immunization resources, information, and provide verbal recommendations for any shortfalls identified during the visit. Approximately 7-10 days after the visit, the IHS will provide a written After Action Report (AAR) of his or her findings and recommendations.
