AFIX external link is a quality improvement strategy, developed by the CDC, to raise immunization coverage levels and improve standards of practices at the provider level. The acronym for this four-part dynamic strategy stands for:

  • Assessment of the healthcare provider's vaccination coverage levels and immunization practices,
  • Feedback of results to the provider along with recommended strategies to improve coverage levels,
  • Incentives to recognize and reward improved performance, and
  • eXchange of healthcare information and resources necessary to facilitate improvement.

You can learn about the process on the CDC’s AFIX webpage. external link
