Group Health Cooperative, a large, membersnip staff model health maintenance organization (HMO), has designed a comprehensive influenza campaign for identifying, recruiting and vaccinating enrollees at increased risk for influenza-related complications.
The Cooperative's Centre for Health Promotion is responsible for the overall planning, implementation and evaluation of the influenza campaign.
The model for delivering influenza immunizations has been designed to build on the strengths and capabilities of a staff model HMO with sophisticated automated information systems.
The model permits area medical centres (AMCs) and physicians to use the materials and intervention strategies generated by the Centre for Health Promotion while at the same time allowing them flexibility to design and use their own intervention strategies to increase compliance.
More importantly, the model reduces resource requirements on AMCs and physicians to plan and maintain internal immunization efforts.
Recommendations for improving the influenza campaign are discussed.
