(Note: Formerly OP-27) Part of the Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP), within the Patient Safety/Inpatient domain, CAHs must report on the influenza vaccination data for HCP physically working in the inpatient and outpatient hospital units for at least one working day between October 1 through March 31, regardless of clinical responsibility or patient contact. This includes all influenza vaccinations administered during the influenza season at the facility or elsewhere, influenza vaccine declinations, and determinations of a medical contraindication to influenza vaccination. Data should be reported separately for employees, licensed independent practitioners, and adult students/trainees and volunteers.
